ABSTRACT

The basidiomycete Antrodia albida was grown in different culture media to study the production of biomass and its active substances. A progressive increase in fungal biomass throughout the 30-day incubation period was observed. The extracts showed discrete antibacterial activity, and the chemical analysis by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry revealed a total of 17 substances in the fungal extracts, including sugars and furanones.
