Molecular Identification And Antimicrobial Activities Of Some Wild Egyptian Mushrooms: Bjerkandera Adusta As A Promising Source Of Bioactive Antimicrobial Phenolic Compounds
The discovery of potential, new cost-effective drug resources in the form of bioactive compounds from mushrooms is one way to control the resistant pathogens. In the present research, the fruiting bodies of five wild mushrooms were collected from Egypt and identified using internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) of the rRNA encoding gene and their phylogenetic relationships, antimicrobial activities, and biochemical and phenolic compounds were evaluated.
The sequences revealed identity to
Our finding provides a quick and robust implement for mushroom identification that would facilitate mushroom domestication and characterization for human benefit.
