Algal toxicity of Talaromyces purpureogenus F pigments in heterotrophic cultivation mode
Parul, General Thiyam and AK Sharma
The present study deals with the impact of Talaromyces purpureogenus F pigments does on growth, photosynthetic activity of Parachlorella kessleri GB1. The reduction in growth and pigment contents (Chl a, Chl b, and carotenoids) was observed in the positive control (herbicide). However, the negative control and pigments doses did not differ significantly in pigments contents. The growth in pigment concentration 3 mg/mL was significantly higher than negative control this might be due to the left out medium content in the fungal pigments. This research provides an understanding of fungal pigments toxicity to aquatic organisms. The heterotrophic cultivation mode for algal toxicity results is rapid to assessments of toxicants.
