Abstract: The mushroom mycelium is able to grow on a wide spectrum of lignocellulosic waste materials, which can be attributed to its ability to secrete a range of degradatory enzymes both saccharifying (cellulases, hemicellulases and xylanases) and oxidative (LiP, MnP and laccases). The degraded products are used as their energy source to produce protein rich edible biomass. The changes in extracellular enzyme activities of laccases are directly correlated with growth and fruit body formation. The present investigation deals with the potentiality of the enzymatic activity during fructification of the pink coloured oyster mushroom, Pleurotus djamor (Fr.) Boedijn var. roseus Corner.
