A native isolate of Pleurotus ostreatus HP-1 (Genbank Accession No. EU420068) was found to have an excellent laccase producing ability. The extracellular lac-case was purified to electrophoretic homogeneity from copper sulphate induced solid-state fermentation medium by ammonium sulphate precipitation and ion-exchange chromatography. The enzyme was(More)
Exopolysaccharides (EPS) of fungal origin have attracted special attention from researchers due to their multifarious applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries. In the present study, optimization of the process parameters for the production of exopolysaccharide by Schizophyllum commune AGMJ-1 was studied using one factor at a time (OFAT)(More)
Hydrocarbon pollution is a perennial problem not only in India but throughout the globe. A plethora of microorganisms have been reported to be efficient degraders of these recalcitrant pollutants. One of the major concerns of environmental problem is the presence of hydrocarbons due to the various anthropogenic activities. PAHs are ubiquitous in nature i.e.(More)
The strain Ganoderma cupreum AG-1 (Gen-bank accession no. HQ328947) isolated from the decayed wood was evaluated for its ability to decolorize azo dye reactive violet 1 as well as for the production of lignino-lytic enzymes. In the initial decolorization study, the strain was capable of decolorizing 19 different azo dyes. The strain was capable of(More)
