Biochemical changes in sporophores of two mushroom species before and after opening of caps

Biochemical changes in sporophores of two mushroom species before and after opening of caps

Annals of Biology 6(2): 95-100

Sporophores of temperate mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus) and paddy straw mushrooms (Volvariella displasia) were analyzed for various chemical constituents in relation to opening of caps. The results indicated that total sugars, lipids, arginine cystine, lysine, methionine and tryptophan were significantly different in the two mushroom species. Opening of caps of the mushrooms significantly decreased tryptophan and increased arginine, ascorbic acid and unsaturated fatty acids in the two species in both cap and stem portions of the mushrooms.
