Abstract

A set of cultures of wood-degrading Basidiomycetes was screened for the ability to decolorize model synthetic dyes with the aim of selecting strains with the highest activities of ligninolytic enzymes. Four decolorization patterns were observed; some species possessed no decolorizing ability, some decolorized on all the media, some decolorized only when fully grown, and only apart of them followed a typical behaviour described in Phanerochaete chrysosporium Burds., i.e. decolorized only on nutrient limited media. The strains with the highest decolorizing capabilities will be further studied with respect to biodegradation of aromatic organopollutants.
