Abstract
Today, fungal melanins isolated from environmental sources are thought to have a tremendous scope. In this study, we have isolated melanin producing fungi from air source. Isolate able to utilize L-tyrosine which was supplemented with potato dextrose medium producing brown to black color pigment was chosen. Its morphological, biochemical and molecular studies were done. The melanin producer was found to be Aspergillus niger.
