Abstract:

The present work is designed for the utilization of agricultural waste for mushroom production and extraction of tyrosinase through-out its developmental growth phases. Various edible mushrooms were screened for tyrosinase activity resulting highest activity in Pleurotus spectrophotometrically. The results also showed that Mushroom could be cultivated using wheat grains and wheat straw. Tyrosinase was observed throughout the growth phases from mycelium to mature stages revealing that maximum tyrosinase activity and highest protein content was observed in premature stage. Result for morphological parts evaluation of mushroom showed that maximum tyrosinase was present in stalk region of mushroom. This is first report about the screening of tyrosinase from both morphological parts and developmental phases of mushroom.
