"The model white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium for investigating biodegradation of recalcitrant pollutants including PAHs. However, metal tolerance of this organism in presence ofPAHsin a mixed pollution scenario is not yet understood. In light of theabove background, we investigated Cd tolerance of this PAH-degrading white rot fungus. The study involved monitoring of tolerance at varying concentrations of Cd ion and PAHs of varying ring size (3 to 5 rings) in terms of mycelial growth rate as well as morphological changes observed during the growth. Particularly the study was an attempt to unravel the influence of PAHs on metal tolerance property of theorganism in a mixed pollution scenario.
