Description: Wood decay fungi are obligate aerobes, deriving nutrients from the biological ‘combustion’ of wood, using molecular oxygen as terminal electron acceptor (Kirk and Farrell 1987; Blanchette 1991). Non-specific extracellular enzymes are generally viewed as key components in lignin depolymerization. The major enzymes implicated in lignin degradation are lignin peroxidase (LiP), manganese peroxidase (MnP), and laccase. All three can act with low molecular weight mediators to bring about oxidation of lignin and various xenobiotics (Cullen 2002).

Keywords: Organopollutant, white rot, brown rot, Phanerochaete, Pleurotus
