The ability of three fungal species, Cunninghamella blakesleeana, Cunninghamella homothallica, and Cunninghamella elegans to grow in the presence of different concentrations of radioactive elements: cadmium, cobalt, and chromium was determined. The results revealed that the genus Cunninghamella were able to grow in a relatively high concentration of radioactive elements and could be used in the absorption of radioactive elements from contaminated liquids. ª 2011 King Saud University.
