Degradation of woolen fabric by the fungus ctenomyces species: Part-I: Factors influencing the growth and activity of the fungus
Keywords: Ctenomyces, Growth, Temperature
AbstractThe influence of various factors, viz. temperature, pH and period of incubation on the growth of the fungus ctenomyces sp. and on its activity with regard to the degradation of serge white lining (woolen fabric) has been studied. The results indicate that the growth and activity of the organism were maximum at temperature near about 30 degree celsius. The variation in pH (from 2.3 to 7.0) of the medium does not seem to influence the growth and or activity of the organism. Increase in the period of incubation from 4 to 24 days steadily increased the growth and activity of the organism.
