Pyrene degradation and detoxification in soil by a consortium of basidiomycetes isolated from compost: role of laccases and peroxidases.

Abstract

A consortium of three basidiomycetes isolated from compost was investigated for pyrene degradation in soil microcosms. Pyrene concentration, glucose and ammonium evolution, moisture content, ligninolytic enzyme activities and phytotoxicity (germination index) on Lepidium sativum L. seeds were monitored. The fungal consortium grown on straw was found able to… (More)
