For the biological removal of triphenylmethane dyes, there have been several successful studies using aerobic and anaerobic bacteria.
On the other hand, mycelia morphology of Pleurotus ostreatus (thin hyaline hyphae, long and pellets) and spore production are additional functional aspects that favor the removal of triphenylmethane dyes.
This study demonstrated that two dyes belonging to the family of the triphenylmethane, a combined process of physical-chemical-enzymatic type, removed MG and CV by using P.
