Laccase is a copper-containing polyphenol oxidase that acts on a wide range of substrates. There are diverse sources of laccase producing organisms like bacteria, fungi and plants. Fungi from the deuteromycetes, ascomycetes, basidomycetes are the known producers of laccase, especially white rot fungi. Trametes versicolor, Chaetomium thermophilium and Pleurotus eryngii are well known producers of laccase. Textile industries discharge a huge quantity of waste in the environment, and the disposal of this waste is a big problem. Enzymes can detoxify these wastes and are not harmful to the environment. Laccases use oxygen and produce water as by product. Their property to act on a range of substrates have made them to be usable for several purposes in many industries including textile industries. The aim of present review is to gather the scientific information for mainly biotechnological producing of fungal laccases and their application in textile industry.
