In this study, extracts from basidiocarps, submerged grown mycelia and crude exopolysaccharide precipitates of Clavariadelphus truncatus (Quél.) Donk (Gomphaceae), Coprinus comatus (O.F. Müll.) Pers. (Agaricaceae), Ganoderma carnosum Pat. (Ganodermataceae), Cerrena unicolor (Bull.) Murrill, Laetiporus sulphureus (Bull.) Murrill, Lentinus strigosus (Schwein.) Fr., Lenzites betulina (L.) Fr. and Polyporus arcularius (Batsch) Fr. (Polyporaceae) were tested for antimicrobial activity. The activity was evaluated by hole-plate diffusion and disk diffusion tests using bacteria and yeasts. Vancomycine and fluconazole were used as positive controls for bacteria and yeasts, respectively. The crude exopolysaccharides of Ganoderma carnosum, Polyporus arcularius, Lenzites betulina, Cerrena unicolor; and basidiocarps of Ganoderma carnosum, Laetiporus sulphureus, Coprinus comatus, Lenzites betulina and Clavariadelphus truncatus have relatively high antimicrobial activity. Mycelial extracts from Cerrena unicolor showed the highest antimicrobial activity against the test cultures.

    Paenibacillus macerans TKU029 can produce exopolysaccharides (EPSs; 3.46 g/L) and a biosurfactant (1.78 g/L) in a medium with 2 % ( w/ v) squid pen powder as the sole carbon/nitrogen source. The biosurfactant can reduce the surface tension of water from 72.30 to 35.34 mN/m at a concentration of...

    Fusaricidin, a lipodepsipeptide isolated from Paenibacillus polymyxa, has high antimicrobial activity against fungi and Gram-positive bacteria. Through mutagenesis, we obtained two mutant strains, N1U7 and N17U7, which produce 6.2- to 7.9-fold more fusaricidin than their parent strain. Causal...
