Abstract. The genus Pleurotus comprises a group of edible ligninolytic mushrooms with medicinal properties and important biotechnological and environmental applications. The cultivation of Pleurotus spp is an economically important food industry worldwide which has expanded in the past few years. P. ostreatus is the third most important cultivated mushroom for food purposes. Nutritionally, it has unique flavor and aromatic properties; and it is considered to be rich in protein, fiber… Expand
