Abstract:

The study aimed at optimizing the mycelial biomass production of G. lucidum by submerged fermentation. Conventional one factor at a time was used as an initial screening process, i.e., one factor was varied, while keeping all the others constant. Different factors like pH, temperature, carbon source, nitrogen source and inoculum size were selected for the optimization process. The optimum pH and temperature of the medium was found to be 5 and 30°C respectively. Different carbon and nitrogen sources were screened for optimum mycelial biomass production. Glucose at a concentration of 1.5% w/v and yeast extract at a concentration of 0.25% w/v was found to be the most effective for the mycelial biomass production. Further, an inoculum size of 6% (v/v) was found to be the best for mycelial biomass production of G. lucidum. The maximum dry mycelial biomass obtained after combining these optimum conditions was found to be 368±3.71 mg/100 mL.
