Abstract

Phanerochaete chrysosporium decolourised 6 out of 9 synthetic textile dyes tested in the presence of glucose. 3 textile dyes were decolourised in the absence of a primary carbon source. Decolourisation of an artificial textile effluent was complete after 7 days, however, the role of lignin peroxidase was unclear.
