Abstract:

The effect of carbon and nitrogen compounds was evaluated on the growth and luminescence of Panellus stipticus (Bulliard ex Fr.) P. Karst. Out of the ten carbon sources tested D (+) raffinose was found to be best carbon source for the luminescence whereas starch supported the maximum mycelial growth in liquid as well as on solid medium. The fungus exhibited nil growth with L (-) sorbose. Among inorganic nitrogen sources, the fungus utilized potassium nitrate as best nitrogen source for maximum biomass production and luminescence in the liquid medium. However, on solid medium maximum biomass production and luminescence was observed with peptone and ammonium acetate, respectively. Among organic nitrogen sources, maximum biomass production was observed in L-cystine, whereas maximum luminescence was observed in L-histidine HCl in liquid medium. On solid medium, the fungus exhibited maximum luminescence with L-histidine HCl and mycelial growth with DL-threonine.


Keywords: Luminescence, Panellus stipticus, D (+) raffinose, potassium nitrate, ammonium acetate, L-histidine HCl.
