Using the characteristics of light-emitting diodes, we studied the effects of light quality, light intensity, and repeated light-dark cycles on the growth of oyster mushroom mycelia. Blue-light stimulation suppressed growth in oyster mushroom mycelia, and this effect was remarkably dependent on light intensity. Random amplified polymorphic DNA differential display analysis enabled the identification for the first time of 15 upregulated and 13 downregulated genes induced by blue-light… 

Transcriptome analysis of the edible mushroom Lentinula edodes in response to blue light

This study compared morphological changes and gene expression in the fruit bodies of L. edodes cultivated under blue light and continuous darkness and showed that blue light primarily induced pileus growth compared to dark cultivation, and stipe length development was promoted by dark cultivation.

Impact of blue light on the biological properties of aqueous extracts during the cultivation of the Inonotus rheades mycelium

: The aim was to determine whether the antioxidant, cytotoxic and virucidal properties of aqueous extracts isolated from the Inonotus rheades basidiomycete depend on the illumination of the mycelium

Regulation of Primary Metabolic Pathways in Oyster Mushroom Mycelia Induced by Blue Light Stimulation: Accumulation of Shikimic Acid

An integrated analysis of primary metabolites, gene expression and protein expression suggests that the accumulation of shikimic acid caused by blue light stimulation is due to an increase in 3-deoxy-D-arabinoheptulosonate 7-phosphate synthase, the rate-determining enzyme in the shikIMic acid pathway.

Light, what it is and what it does for mycology

In this review, readers are given a basis for understanding what has been learned, what the authors know or they do not know, and some things that can be done with what they do know on what light is and how it can be used in the laboratory.

Antitumor Properties of Aqueous Extracts from Inonotus rheades Mycelium and Their Evaluation under Various Cultivation Conditions

The antitumor properties of aqueous extracts of Inonotusrheades basidiomycete mushrooms were evaluated when the fungi were cultured on wood discs and wood shavings (birch) at 25 ± 1°C in the dark and

Induction of antimicrobial activity of some macromycetes by low-intensity light

This work has shown the possibility of the usage of lowintensity coherent laser and incoherent light from different sources to stimulate the growth and biosynthetic activity of some macromycetes.

Growth, cultural and morphological characteristics of strains of Laetiporus sulphureus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) under the influence of laser irradiation

It has been found that cultural and morphological characteristics of the colonies and the radial rate of their growth depend on the duration of irradiation and the wavelength of light and the most effective irradiation is that with green light lasting 10 s.

Factors affecting mushroom Pleurotus spp.

The effect of light on growth and sporulation of certain fungi

The effect of light on growth of Pleurotus was found to be concerned with both cell mechanism and medium: light probably inhibits inside the cell the synthesis of one or more substances essential for growth and at the same time it favors the breakdown in the medium of oneor more substances required for growth.

The dst1 Gene Involved in Mushroom Photomorphogenesis of Coprinus cinereus Encodes a Putative Photoreceptor for Blue Light

Five strains that produce dark stipes even if light conditions promoting the maturation are given are genetically analyzed and one of them, Uar801 (dst1-1), is characterized, suggesting that Dst1 is a blue-light receptor of C. cinereus.

Annealing control primer system for identification of differentially expressed genes on agarose gels.

GeneFishing technology, an improved method for the identification of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) using the novel annealing control primer (ACP) system, generates reproducible, authentic, and long PCR products that are detectable on agarose gels.
