Uptake of heavy metals by a copper tolerant fungus penicillium ochro chloron



Uptake of heavy metals by a copper tolerant fungus penicillium ochro chloron



Agricultural and Biological Chemistry 41(1): 17-22



A strain of P. ochro-chloron having a high tolerance to Cu has a similar tolerance to Zn, Mn, Fe, Pb and Cd; but was sensitive to Hg, Ni and Co. The cellular contents of Cu and Zn in the fungus leveled off in the cases of media containing higher concentrations of Cu and Zn. These constant uptakes were characteristic of Cu and Zn, whereas they were not observed with Ni and Co. Marked reduction of the cellular contents of K and Mg was observed in the cases of higher concentrations of Cu and Zn in the media.
