Ecotoxicological assessment demonstrated that lupanine is toxic for Vibrio fischeri and Daphnia magna exhibiting EC50 values of 89 mg L−1 and 47 mg L−1 respectively, while acting both as growth inhibitor for a monocotyledonous and as promoter for a dicotyledonous plant. Among the eight aerobic and anaerobic strains isolated and identified Rhodococcus rhodochrous LPK211 achieved 81% removal for 1.5 g L−1 lupanine, while no end-products were detected by NMR constituting a promising microorganism for lupanine biodegradation. Moreover, Rhodococcus ruber LPK111 and Rhodococcus sp. LPK311 exhibited 66% and 71% of removal respectively, including potential formation of lupanine N-oxide. Pseudomonas putida LPK411 reached 80% of lupanine removal and generated three fermentation products potentially comprising 17-oxolupanine and lupanine derivatives with open ring structures enabling the development of alkaloid valorization processes.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/10971||ISSN:||0045-6535||DOI:||10.1016/j.chemosphere.2017.10.165||Rights:||© 2017 Elsevier Ltd||Type:||Article|
