Title: Effects of NO and Trehalose on Heat Stress Responses in Pleurotus eryngii var. tuoliensis
Author: Xiangli Wu, Lijuan Meng, Weiwei Kong, Chenyang Huang, Jinxia Zhang
Pleurotus eryngii var. tuoliensis is a favored mushroom of rich nutrition and medicinal value. Now it keeps growing in demand and cultivation scale. However, the spawning of the mushroom cultivated in agricultural facilities in China are usually in naturally high temperature period, which always lead to “burnt mycelium” and declined production. Therefore, to explore the mitigating the oxidative damage mechanism of mycelial heat stress response would establish a theoretical basis for a new species breeding and have both scientific and industrial significances. In organisms, nitric oxide and trehalose, as a signal molecular and protective metabolite respectively, have important roles in response to abiotic stresses. The research with respect to the functions of NO and trehalose in response to heat stress attracted more and more attentions.
