Abstract

Mushrooms have long been appreciated for their flavor, texture, medicinal and nutraceutical attributes. The present study deals with fluorescent bioactive compounds from Armillaria mellea (MTCC 409) and Omphalotus olearius (MTCC 2790) were obtained from MTCC, Chandigarh and pure mycelial cultures were developed. Time scale studies for the production, extraction, and estimation of fluorescent dyes were carried out and the evaluated for their antioxidant and antibacterial activities. A. mellea and O. olearius grown in potato dextrose broth recorded the maximum mycelial dry weight of 5.90 ± 1.12g/50mL and 0.57 ± 0.025 g/50mL respectively on 28th day.  A. mellea and O. olearius mycelium (1000 mg) recorded maximum crude fluorescent dyes in acetone (255 mg) and methanol (553mg) respectively.  A. mellea recorded good antioxidant activity with water extract (47.5% ± 0.6), followed by ethyl acetate extract (46.4% ± 13.09). Acetone extracts of A. mellea and O. olearius recorded highest zone of inhibition (0.4 cm and 1cm) against E. coli and P. aeruginosa respectively.

Key words: Armillaria mellea, Omphalotus olearius, Antioxidant activity, Antimicrobial activity, Fluorescent dyes.
