  The white rot fungus isolated from continuous pulp and paper mill effluent irrigated soil and identified as Phanerochaete chrysosporium (TL 1) was capable of degrading pentachlorophenol. 14C synthetic lignin mineralization assays showed that the fungus assimilated 33.6% of the total label. Removal and degradation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) by the organism in static flask cultures was studied using ammonium lignosulphonate (LS), a waste product of paper mill industry, as a carbon and nitrogen source. After eight days, Phanerochaete chrysosporium (TL 1) grown in 2% LS (nitrogen sufficient) medium removed 85% of PCP which was comparable that of degradation in 2% glucose medium (93%). The presence of laccase (EC.1.10.3.2) extracellular activity suggested that the fungus secrete the enzyme into the extracellular medium, which was responsible for the degradation on PCP. The extracellular laccase activity was assayed on agarose plates containing ABTS.

  A white rot fungus isolated from soil samples enriched by continuous pulp and paper mill effluent irrigation and identified as Trametes versicolor was capable of decolorization and degradation of phenol from paper mill effluent. 14C synthetic lignin mineralization assays showed that Trametes versicolor assimilated 24.3% of the total label. There was 76% effluent decolourization along with 78% COD reduction. The effluent chlorinated phenol degradation was 85% by Trametes versicolor, when added with 1% glucose as co-substrate.

  The white rot fungus isolated from paper mill effluent enriched soil samples and identified as Trametes versicolor was capable of degrading phenol (Mono, di hydroxy and methoxy) compounds.14C synthetic lignin mineralization assays showed that Trametes versicolor assimilated 24.3% of the total label. During five days of incubation period, 71% of para-hydroxy benzoic acid was utilized by Trametes versicolor when glucose used as a co-substrate and 56% degradation of protocatechuic acid was achieved using fructose. The presence of laccase (EC.1.10.3.2) and polyphenol oxidase (EC.1.10.3.0) extracellular activity suggested that the fungus secrete these enzymes into the extracellular medium and the extracellular laccase activity was assayed on agarose plates containing ABTS.

  Herbal drugs are considered to be the best alternative for many diseases. Even incurable diseases like cancer, HIV, etc., are moving towards the traditional herbal drugs. The treatment using herbal drugs is gaining momentum to the vital organs like liver, kidney and heart. In such movement, the finding of the presence of effectiveness of hepatoprotective factor from any plant is felt a contributory one. Terminalia arjuna a plant commonly observed in the south India is found to have a property of hepatoprotectiveness. In order to appreciate the hepatoprotective activity of the Terminalia arjuna, hydroalcoholic extract of the same is used here on Albino Wistar mice. The general behaviour of the animals has been studied in comparison to control group with the Terminalia arjuna extract treated animals. A gross pathology and histopathology have also been studied. The results obtained from the study of GOT, GPT and ALP clearly direct the hepatoprotective effectiveness of hydroalcoholic extract of Terminalia arjuna.
