Discarded oyster mushroom beds were examined for their bioactive
compounds and industrially important enzymes. Spent oyster
mushroom beds were used as substrate by micro organisms such as
Bacillus megaterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris,
Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and Micrococcus sp were used production
of industrially important enzymes and bioactive compounds. Bioactive
compounds such as total sugars and reducing sugars were produced by
B. amyloliquefaciens. B. megaterium, B. amyloliquefaciens showed
positive result in lipid hydrolysis. Microorganisms such as B.
megaterium, P. aeruginosa, P. vulgaris, B. amyloliquefaciens, and
Micrococcus sp used spent oyster mushroom bed as good source for production of
industrially important enzymes such as laccase, lignin peroxidase , manganese peroxidase,
cellulase, protease, amylase, pectinase, xylanase and catalase.
