PURPOSE Malachite Green (MG) is used for a variety of applications but is also known to be carcinogenic and mutagenic. In this study, a novel Micrococcus sp. (strain BD15) was observed to efficiently decolorize MG. The purposes of this study were to explore the optimal conditions for decolorization and to evaluate the potential use of this strain for MG decolorization. METHODS Optical microscope and UV-visible analyses were carried out to determine whether the decolorization was due to… CONTINUE READING
