"The results on toxicity of Cd (0.5 mM) and pyrene (10 ppm) measured in terms of cell death based on live/dead staining are presented in Red fluorescence due to PI staining of dead cells indicated cell death. While control (untreated) mycelia and Pyrene-treated mycelia showed no considerable dead filaments, oth Cd-treated and Cd+Pyr-treated showed the dead filament population, indicating that Cd was toxic but presence of Cd along with pyrene increased the toxicity more than Cd alone. This filament-specific observation contrasted with the overall protective influence of pyrene on the fungal pellet morphology and biomass yield in the co-contaminated medium.
