Volvariella volvacea strains were studied in relation with their ability to produce biomass, lipids and polysaccharides. Firstly, screening of four strains (AMLR 188, 190, 191 and 192) was performed in agar cultures, where the mycelial growth rate of the strains was measured, and in static liquid cultures, where the production of biomass, the biosynthesis of total cellular lipids and the consumption of glucose were monitored. For all strains, biomass production was significant (13-15 g l(-1… CONTINUE READING
