Due to their low substrate specificity, fungal laccases have a great potential in industrial applications, including the bioremediation of colored wastewaters from textile industry. However, the presence of halides in these effluents (up to 1M NaCl) which inhibit laccases is a drawback for bioremediation processes. In order to develop an efficient enzymatic(More)
In view of compliance with increasingly stringent environmental legislation imposed by regional, national, and supranational (e.g., European Union) authorities, innovative environmental technologies for the treatment of dye-contaminated effluents are necessary in the color industry. In this study, effluents of an industrial dye producer were subjected to(More)
Only few data exist on the metabolites produced during the biotransformation of anthraquinonic dyes by white rot fungi (WRF). During the biotransformation of an anthraquinonic dye Acid Blue 62 (ABu62) using Pycnoporus sanguineus MUCL 41582 strain, it was previously demonstrated that the blue colour of the medium turned to red before complete dye(More)
In this article, a HPLC method to identify and quantify the dyes and the indigo precursors produced in Polygonum tinctorium is described. Using this technique, indican has been positively identified in extracts of P. tinctorium. Our work with two cultivars of P. tinctorium has confirmed that the quantity of indican is dependent on the cultivars, harvest(More)
Indole is presumably a product of indole-3-glycerol phosphate catabolism in Isatis tinctoria. It is oxidized into indoxyl and stored in young leaves as indigo precursor. Further oxidation and dimerization of indoxyl produces indigoid pigments. In this work, we describe an HPLC method dedicated to the identification and quantification of indigoid pigments(More)
