Abstract

After studying the effects of carbon sources, nitrogen sources, and mineral elements on the mycelia growth of ARF907 in our lab, this research firstly was concerned with the carbon concentration, carbon to nitrogen ratio on the mycelia growth of this fungus, and the better mycelial yield got with carbon concentration of 6 g l-1 and carbon to nitrogen ratio of 160:1. This paper secondly was concerned with the combinations of carbon and nitrogen sources on mycelial growth at certain carbon concentration and carbon to nitrogen ratio. Full experiments of 4 carbon sources and 6 nitrogen sources, were selected and found that fructose with soy peptone got the best mycelia yields.
 
Key words: Carbon concentration, carbon to nitrogen ratio, carbon source, nitrogen source.
