7 pagesDate: December 4, 2021


In recent years, varieties of mushrooms have been identified and the number of mushrooms being cultivated for medicinal purposes. Fresh Ganoderma lucidum fruiting bodies were collected from Belgahana, Bilaspur District, Chhattishgarh during August and September 2020 and were tested for biochemical and antimicrobial activities from ENT screened microbes. Protein, Carbohydrate, Tannins and Terpenoids are present in ethanol, methanol, water of crude and silver nitrate treated extracts. The crude extract of Ganoderma lucidum and AgNO3 from ethanol, methanol, and aqueous was revealed good antimicrobial activity against test organisms. Ciprofloxacin has used for standard was shown good zone of inhibition (20 to 28mm). The Ethanol extract of AgNO3 treated with of Ganoderma lucidum has shown effective inhibition zone against all the organisms. Methanol extract of crude and AgNO3 of Ganoderma lucidum shown inhibitory effect against test organisms (candida albicans, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and staphylococcus aureus). Ethanolic extract of AgNO3 treated Ganoderma lucidum has shown good inhibitory effect against ENT infected microbial species while in crude extract it shown low inhibition of zone.
