Ectomycorrhizal fungal species and strains differ in their ability to produce free and conjugated polyamines

  title={Ectomycorrhizal fungal species and strains differ in their ability to produce free and conjugated polyamines},
  author={Karoliina Niemi and Hely M. H{\"a}ggman and Tytti Sarjala},
Production of free and conjugated polyamines by one strain of Laccaria proxima (Boud.) Maire, three strains (H, O, K) of Paxillus involutus (Batsch) Fr., and one strain of Pisolithus tinctorius was studied in vitro. Spermidine (Spd) was the main polyamine in the 4-week-old mycelium of all the fungi. It was mainly present in the free form, but it also occurred in conjugated forms. Paxillus involutus strain H released large amounts of free putrescine (Put), and the Pisolithus tinctorius released… CONTINUE READING
