In the present report, nutritional requirement for the culture of two lichen species Ramalina nervulosa and Ramalina pacifica were studied in order to enhance their growth rate and antioxidant metabolite production. Extract of R. nervulosa cultured in Bold’s basal medium (BBM) showed higher antioxidant activity than R. pacifica cultured in Murashige and… CONTINUE READING
