Mushrooms are considered rich in proteins, carbohydrates and other nutrients. The present study was carried out to evaluate some edible mushrooms of Kashmir valley for their protein, carbohydrate and lipid contents. The highest protein content was found in Boletus edulis (2.20g) followed by Agaricus bisporus (1.80g), Pleurotus ostreatus (1.68g), Morchella esculenta (1.62g) and Pleurotus sajor caju (1.6g). Carbohydrate content also showed variation in all the five tested edible mushroom species…

The Effect of Ascorbate Salts on Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) Grown under Salinity Stress
THIS STUDY aimed to investigate the impact of the mixture of two ascorbate salts (1:2, K-ascorbate: Ca-ascorbate, w/w) on the growth, biochemical and physiological activities and nutritive value of
Assessment of Agaricus Bisporus S-II Extract as a Bio-Controlling Agent against Human Pathogenic Bacterial Species.
The present study indicated that the extracts of the A. bisporus S-II mushrooms had promising antimicrobial activities against the tested organisms.
Assessment of Agaricus Bisporus S-II Extract as a Bio- Controlling Agent against Human Pathogenic Bacterial Species
The present study indicated that the extracts of the A. bisporus S-II mushrooms had promising antimicrobial activities against the tested organisms.
Pharmacological importance of Pleurotus sajor-caju (Fr.) Singer
This mushroom contains polysaccharides, triterpenoids, fatty acids, enzymes and is reported to have antitumor, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, antiproliferative, antioxidant activities, and shows great potential to be developed as a natural therapy for various diseases.
Cytotoxic Activity of Edible Mushrooms extracts against Tumor Cell Lines
It is observed that the extracts of fresh and freeze-dried fruiting bodies had a stronger inhibition effect extracts from mycelia and broth when extracted by water and methanol, but effects of these compounds on normal cells must be determined.


Proximate and mineral composition of four edible mushroom species from South Western Nigeria
Results of proximate analysis of four edible species of mushroom collected from Akoko land in Ondo state, Nigeria indicate that Termitomyces mammiformis was a very good source of crude protein (37%),
Antioxidant principles from Bauhinia tarapotensis.
A new cyclohexenone and a new caffeoyl ester derivative are reported, together with the known compounds (-)-isolariciresinol 3-alpha-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside, which were isolated from the leaves of Bauhinia tarapotensis by spectroscopic data analysis.
Colorimetric Method for Determination of Sugars and Related Substances
Simple sugars, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, and their derivatives, including the methyl ethers with free or potentially free reducing groups, give an orangeyellow color w-hen treated with
Reactivity of hydroxyl and hydroxyl-like radicals discriminated by release of thiobarbituric acid-reactive material from deoxy sugars, nucleosides and benzoate.
The results suggest that, in the absence of EDTA, iron ions bind to the carbohydrate detector molecules and bring about a site-specific reaction on the molecule, which is poorly inhibited by most OH.
