Item Description: @ArticlePlácido2016, author= Pl\'acido, Jerssonand Chanag\'a, Xiomaraand Ortiz-Monsalve, Santiagoand Yepes, Mar\'iaand Mora, Amanda, title= Degradation and detoxification of synthetic dyes and textile industry effluents by newly isolated Leptosphaerulina sp. from Colombia, journal= Bioresources and Bioprocessing, year= 2016, volume= 3, number= 1, pages= 1--14, abstract= Wastewaters from the textile industry are an environmental problem for the well-known Colombian textile industry. Ligninolytic fungi and their enzymes are an option for the treatment of these wastewaters; however, the Colombian biodiversity has not been deeply evaluated for fungal strains with ligninolytic activities. In this research, 92 Colombian fungal isolates were collected from four locations around the Aburr\'a valley, Antioquia, Colombia. Their decolorizing activities were evaluated using Novacron Red, Remazol Black and Turquoise Blue in solid and liquid media at different culture conditions. The best fungal isolate was evaluated in the bioremediation of two real effluents and its enzymatic extracts were used in the decolorization of the three dyes., issn= 2197-4365, doi= 10.1186/s40643-016-0084-x, url= http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/s40643-016-0084-x
