Abstract

When studying the biosynthesis of mucidin under production (glucose as the main carbon source) and non-production (glucitol as the main carbon source) conditions it could be shown that the producer,Oudemansiella mucida, utilizes glucitol both for growth and for mucidin biosynthesis. However, the production of mucidin is 10 times ower than on glucose. When the culture was preincubated on glucose and transferred to non-production conditions the negative effect of glucitol could not be demonstrated. Biosynthesis of mucidin is influenced by the used carbon source already at an early stage of the cultivation
