DIVERSITY OF METABOLITES PRODUCED BY WHITE ROT FUNGI POSSESS DIFFERENT BIOLOGICAL PROPERTIES: A REVIEWSanam Kundu and Minhaj Ahmad Khan
White rot fungi is a well known wood decaying macro-fungi being studied for many years for the potential applications in the bio-degradation of environmental pollutants because they produces a varieties of enzyme primarily responsible for the degradation of complex organic polymers. Along with these white rot fungi produces a vast number of cellular and extracellular metabolites having significant biological properties like antimicrobial, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, and nutritional properties. Because of these properties white rot fungi are being used in many field of science like Environmental Biotechnology, Bio-remediation technology, dye decolourization technology, Pharmaceutical industries, Nutritional researches etc. Aim of the study is to find out the different types of metabolites they produce, in which bio-synthetic pathways and their significant biological properties.
