Among eighteen phenolic acids (gallic, protocatechuic, gentisic, 4-OH-benzoic, 3-OH-benzoic, vanillic, trans-caffeic, cis-caffeic, syringic, trans-p-coumaric, trans-ferulic, veratric, salicylic, 3-OH-cinnamic, trans-sinapic, and cis-sinapic) just eight were found and quantitatively determined.
cassumunar rhizomes have revealed the presence of phenylbutanoids, cyclohexene derivatives, naphthoquinones, vanillin, vanillic acid, veratric acid [2-5], terpenoids, [beta]-sitosterol, and curcuminoids [6-9].
The experiment was done by exposing 2 high laccase fungal strains to 1C to 10C potencies of HBT and ABTS over 14 days, the laccase produced assessed for activity via PAGE and colorimetric tests and the level of demethylation activity assessed after incubation with veratric acid.
