Abstract:

Six species of agaricomycetous fungi belonging to five genera of family Polyporaceae viz.: Hexagonia tenuis, Trametes versicolor, Trametes sp., Pycnoporus coccineus and Pseudotrametes sp. and to Meruliaceae viz.: Flavodon flavus which cause wood decay of timber trees of N.W. Himalayas were qualitatively screened for lignocellulolytic enzymes.. These were collected from different localities of North Western Himalayas. In the results, yellow opaque area around the mycelial growth shows Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) degradation whereas zone of discoloration of the medium show the ligninolytic enzymatic activity of the fungi.


Keywords: Agaricomycetes, cellulase, laccase
