Five wild culinary-medicinal species of genus Pleurotus (Fr.) P. Kumm. (P. floridanus Singer, P. pulmonarius (Fr.) Quél., P. sapidus Quél., P. cystidiosus O.K. Miller, and P. sajor-caju (Fr.) Singer), collected from different localities of Northwest India, were studied for their nutritional and nutraceutical composition. Composition analysis of nutrients(More)
BACKGROUND Cordyceps cicadae is known as Jin Chan Hua in Traditional Chinese Medicine and known to possess different pharmacological activities. Presently, it was collected from the wild and isolated. Mycelial culture was optimized for extraction of polysaccharides under submerged culture conditions. Besides antioxidant, antibacterial activities of(More)
Under present experiments, EPS and IPS production, monosaccharide composition, and antioxidant activities of C. gracilis were studied for the first time under submerged culture conditions. Effect of different factors on polysaccharides production was studied by orthogonal experiments using one-factor-at-a-time method. Incubation of culture in the medium(More)
In this study, using standard methods, mycelial nutrients, bioactive compounds, and antioxidants were analyzed for the first time for five fungal species: Isaria sinclairii (Berk.) Lloyd, I. tenuipes Peck, I. japonica Yasuda, I. farinosa (Holmsk) Fr. and Cordyceps tuberculata (Lebert) Maire. All of these species were low in fat content and rich in protein,(More)
Mushrooms have long been treated as a delicacy. Nowadays, however, many researchers consider them to be nutraceutical foods. The objective of this study was to determine the nutraceutical components in 7 edible species of Termitomyces (T. microcarpus, T. radicatus, T. badius, T. medius, T. heimii, T. striatus, and T. mammiformis) collected from different(More)
Coremiopleurotus (Pleurotus cystidiosus O.K. Miller) is studied for its taxonomic, cultural, molecular features and nutraceutical attributes and illustrated based on collection from Patiala in Punjab (India). It is a wood decaying edible basidiomycetous mushroom, characterized by the formation of specialized anamorphic structures called coremia. Internal(More)
Taxonomy and compositional evaluation of two new medicinal and edible varieties, Lentinus squarrosulus var. mangiferae and Pleurotus pulmonarius var. indicus, have been detailed in the present paper. Two new varieties were taxonomically identified by morphological, microscopical and ITS-region sequencing. Composition of proteins, carbohydrates, fat, ash(More)
During a frequent survey in the northwest Indian Himalayan region, a new species-Cordyceps macleodganensis-was encountered. This species is described on the basis of its macromorphological features, microscopic details, and internal transcribed spacer sequencing. This species showed only 90% resemblance to Cordyceps gracilis. The chemical composition of the(More)
The present paper aims to investigate the culinary-medicinal potential, chemical composition, and sociobiological aspects of seven edible species of genus Termitomyces (T. microcarpus, T. radicatus, T. badius, T. medius, T. heimii, T. striatus, and T. mammiformis) collected from different localities of North India during the monsoon season. The mushrooms(More)
In the present paper five wild Pleurotus species namely P. floridanus Singer, P. pulmonarius (Fr.) Quél., P. sapidus Quél., P. cystidiosus O.K.Mill. and P. sajor-caju (Fr.) Sing., collected from different localities of North West India have been studied for the qualitative estimation of cellulose and lignin degradation enzymes through colorimetric assays.(More)
