Filamentous fungi show great promise in remediation of environmental contaminants such as industrial dyes. In the current study, Aspergillus niger (Genbank ID: JF437542) decolorized 82 % of the test dye malachite green (MG; 50 mg/l) during cultivation for 24 h. The organism decolorized only 6 % of the MG at higher concentration (250 mg MG/l) during the same time period and growth was inhibited at this higher MG concentration. Exposing A. niger to different types of stress resulted in variable… CONTINUE READING
