Abstract:Three species of field-collected fungi—Trametes versicolor, Polyporus brumalis, and Pycnoporus cinnabarinus—were tested for antibiotic properties. Extracts and powders of each fungus were placed in Petri dishes containing nutrient agar along with the active bacterial culture from yogurt (Lactobacillus acidophilus). Control tests were conducted without fungal components. Pycnoporus cinnabarinus in the form of a powder prevented bacterial growth. Bacterial growth was enhanced in all other plates.
