Abstract

The White Fungus, which causes white rot on tree trunks, belongs to the basidiomycetes. Research into the microbiology of White-rot fungi has focused on engineering processes related to factors such as cell growth and enzyme production processes, and to smaller, i.e., molecular biology. Many studies have been conducted to select issues with high or specific biodegradation performance in a variety of ways. Production inhibitors have been used to improve enzyme production. Investigators are investigating different carriers (Stainless Steel net, polyamide fiber net, fiberglass net and polyurethane foam) to impair P.chrysosporium ligninolytic enzyme production. In this review, Pathophysiology, Microbiology, impact factors, treatments and alternative uses show white mold formation in biotransformation. The white fungus is being investigated to produce biotechnology for the reduction of a broad spectrum, a natural pollutant based on lignin-deficient enzymes. This in particular covers the destruction of many wastes and environmental pollution, including wastewater, pesticides, toxic natural pollutants, chlorinated hydrocarbons, etc. It will be updated.
