The discharge of wastewater from textile industries into aquatic bodies has severe health and environmental impacts. Textile industries generate huge amounts of effluents containing hazardous toxic dyes. Anthraquinone (AQ) dyes containing AQ chromophore groups are the second most important class of nondegradable textile dyes, preceded by azo dyes. Despite their prevalence, biodegradation of AQ dyes has not yet been completely understood because of their complex and stable structures. Currently, microbiological approaches to treating dyeing wastewater are considered economical and feasible, and reports regarding fungal degradation of AQ dyes are increasing. Structures and classification of AQ dyes were summarized in this study along with degradative fungi, and their enzyme systems with influencing factors and possible mechanisms of AQ mycoremediation were explored. Furthermore, the existing problems and present research progress were discussed. Finally, the key points with future research directions were presented.
