Antrodia cinnamomea is an expensive medicinal fungus that grows only inside the rotten trunk of Cinnamomum kanehirae . In vitro culture of A. cinnamomea fruiting body is difficult and, therefore, of value for further investigation. To study whether the fructification of A. cinnamomea is strain dependent in artificial media, we grew four different A. cinnamomea strains on malt extract agar (MEA) media. The standard MEA and a series of dilution of the MEA nutrient components were made to culture… CONTINUE READING
