ABSTRACT: The cultures of Amanita muscaria and Laccaria ohiensis were grown in different concentrations of Cr (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 M). The effects of Cr in all the physio-chemical and biochemical activities such as biomass, total soluble sugars, total amino acids, total phenolic content, total lipids intracellular and extracellular protein content, polypeptide changes, intracellular and extracellular enzyme activity (acid phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase) Amanita muscaria showed higher activities than Laccaria Oheinsis.
