The fungusInonotus obliquus (Pers.) Pil. synthesized high-molecular-weight phenolic pigments that were assigned to melanins according to their physicochemical properties. It was shown that copper ions (0.008%), pyrocatechol (1.0 mM), and tyrosine (20.0 mM) stimulated melanogenesis. The production of melanin correlated with the synthesis ofo- andp-diphenoloxidases. The fungal melanin had strong antioxidant and genoprotective effects.
