ABSTRACT

The accumulation of biomass, endo- and exopolysaccharides, lipids, phospholipids, fatty acids, proteins, and polyphenols as well as the antioxidant activity of Cordyceps sinensis submerged mycelium were studied. C. sinensis mycelial biomass contains up to 29% proteins, 15% endopolysaccharides, and over 7% lipids and is rich in phospholipids (up to 28% of total lipids) and unsaturated fatty acids (C18:1 − up to 44%; C18:2 − 53% of total fatty acids). Inoculum irradiation with light of different wavelengths affects mycelial biomass biosynthesis and exopolysaccharide production in C. sinensis.
