White rot fungi are the most capable micro-organisms to degrade lignin. Lignin degradation is not catalysed by any particular enzyme but by concerted action of a group of enzymes termed as lignolytic enzymes. A simple petriplate screening procedure in solid medium for testing extracellular production of these enzymes based on change in colour of the medium and visual detection has been proposed and evaluated.
