unicolor fruiting body
showed the presence of water (50%), water-insoluble (1 [right arrow] 3)-[alpha]-D-glucan (23.1%), and the remaining part composed of other structural ingredients of cell wall.
The maximum number of fruiting body
(164.33) was recorded on T3 and was significantly different from the control in the first flush.
Nutrient composition and functional activity of different stages in the fruiting body
development of Philippine paddy straw mushroom, Volvariella volvacea (Bull.:Fr.) Sing.
It was found that not all instances of fungal fruiting body
presence were accompanied by an increase of localized MC in the area.
Lo, H.C., Tu, S.T., Lin, K.C., Lin, S.C., 2004, The anti-hyperglycemic activity of the fruiting body
of Cordyceps in diabetic rats induced by nicotinamide and streptozotocin.
The fruiting body
, which is equivalent to the mushrooms produced by other fungi species, is up to 10m long, 80cm wide and weighs half a tonne.
(1995), the addition of casamino acids and inositol is important for the formation of the fruiting body

strains to new residues requires knowledge of the cultivation process and the chemical composition of both substrate and fruiting body
, more so as new formulations with wood and agroindustrial waste from the Amazon region are considered.
It originates from the fruiting body
of the quinoa plant that is native to the South American Andes region.
The researchers compared not only these three species, but also wild versus cultivated fungi and three different botanical parts: the whole fruiting body
, the pileus (cap) and the stipe (stalk).
