Mechanisms of Cd and Cr removal and tolerance by macrofungus Pleurotus ostreatus HAU-2.

Abstract

Fungi bioaccumulation is a novel and highly promising approach to remediate polluted soil. The present study revealed a high ability to tolerate Cd and Cr in the fungus Pleurotus ostreatus HAU-2. However, high concentrations of Cd and Cr can suppress fungal growth and result in a variation of hypha micromorphology. Batch experiments were performed to… (More)
