La biodegradacion por Basidiomycetes se considera un proceso no especifico, oxidativo y que es llevado a cabo fundamental mente por la accion de tres diferentes tipos de enzimas: Lignina peroxidasa (LiPs), Mn-Peroxidasas (Mn--Ps), las cuales dependen de peroxido de hidrogeno, y lacasa, la cual depende de oxigeno molecular (Gold y Allic, 1993; Gadd, 2001; Baldrian, 2002).
