|Title:||Degradation Of Aromatic Pollutants By A Non-basidiomycete Ligninolytic Fungus|
|Abstract:||The bioremediation of PAH, compounds which are of great environmental and health concern, was studied using a non-basidiomycete ligninolytic fungus. A ligninolytic fungal strain (F 898) was grown in media containing either naphthalene, phenanthrene, anthracene, tannic acid, or phenol as the carbon source. Various levels of lignin peroxidase (LiP), manganese peroxidase (MnP) and laccase activities were detected following growth for three, six, and ten days. Indepependent of the carbon source, MnP activity levels were higher than LiP and laccase activities. Degradation (D) of the five PAH compounds, measured by reversed-phase HPLC on a C18 column, changed with each carbon source. Phenol and naphthalene were the least degraded compounds (D < 20%). Degradations for anthracene, phenanthrene, and tannic acid were respectively ~ 27%, 90%, and 100%.|
