Abstract:

The aim of this study to investigate the laccase, lignin peroxidase and manganese peroxidase enzyme production by white rot fungi Podoscypha elegans, A white rot fungi P. elegans was collected from the Bilaspur district of Chhattisgarh, India, then fungi was cultivated in the ligninolytic enzyme screening medium containing indicator compound, after that quantify the production of enzymes. The maximum 1013 U/L laccase, 48.24 U/mg Specific laccase activity, 1509 U/L lignin peroxidase, 71.86 U/mg Specific lignin peroxidase activity, 14230 U/L manganese peroxidase, 677.62 U/mg Specific manganese peroxidase activity and 358 mg biomass were found in the mineral salt broth. Ligninolytic enzymes are responsible for the lignin and organic pollutant degradation therefore P. elegans can be used for the degradation of pollutants from the environment.
