Biodegradation of Chlorinated Organic Compounds by Phanerochaete Chrysosporium, A Wood-Rotting Fungus.
ACS Symposium Series
The white rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium, is able to mineralize a number of environmentally persistent organochlorides. Studies suggest that the ability to degrade these compounds is dependent upon the lignin degrading system of this fungus. It is suggested that the ability of P. chrysosporium to mineralize a wide variety of organochlorides may make this fungus a useful microorganism for use in the biological treatment of contaminated soils, sediments and aqueous wastes when used in appropriate aerated waste treatment systems.
