of the cellulose enzyme system which acts synergistically to degrade cellulose into glucose subunits (Ban152). The purpose of this experiment was to measure the rate of cellobiase activity in various club fungi types. The types of club fungi experimentally used was Agaricus bisporus (button mushroom), Pleurotus ostreatus (oyster mushroom), and Lentinula edodes (shiitake mushroom). The living environments of these three mushrooms are distinctly different. Button mushrooms are natives to grassland areas, oyster mushrooms are usually found on decaying trees and wood in clusters, and shiitake mushrooms are found on decaying trees. The hypothesis formulated was that the oyster mushrooms would have the highest rate of reaction, in comparison to shitake and button mushrooms, because it is found on decaying logs and it is larger in…
The experiment studied mushrooms, which are members of the phylum Basidiomycota and the kingdom Fungi. The study tested three types of mushrooms: Agaricus bisporus commonly known as the button mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus or the oyster mushroom, and Tricholoma magnivelare or the shiitake mushroom. The three types of mushrooms decompose different forms of organic matter and occupy different habitats. The oyster mushrooms live on tree roots and decompose dying hardwood trees; the…

though often serious and capable of causing death, are usually treatable (Boile, Julien).
In my opinion, I personally do not think food additives are damaging for one’s health. Yes, they say there were some concerns about allergic reactions such as asthma and rashes. But to me one should know what one is allergic to and what effects certain food could have on their body and to avoid them at all cost.

If you like the bloody Chinese Shiitake shape, but not the Jewish voice, Burmese can be your cat. He is a slick, quiet cat who loves people and follows them from room to room. Expect Burma, who wants to get involved in what you do, and be thankful that he is not as successful as a Siamese.
