Last years fundamental and applied research on Basidiomycetes has markedly increased due to their potential use in a variety of biotechnological and environmental applications. Th is presentation integrates the recent data on the physiology of woodrotting basidiomycetes, focusing on the common characteristics and unique properties of individual fungi as well as on several approaches providing enhanced production of biologically active compounds (BAC): lignocellulolytic enzymes, antioxidants, lectins, and exo-polysaccharides. Firstly, we describe that the production and yield of BAC is species-dependent and strain-dependent and selection of new organisms with tremendous synthesis is possible. Secondly, lignocellulosic substrate plays a crucial role in BAC production. Th irdly, we show that some supplements regulate BAC synthesis although their eff ect is very specifi c depending on fungi physiological peculiarities. Moreover, the data on feasibility of submerged and solid-state fermentation of food industry wastes for dietary supplements and pharmaceutical compounds production will be presented
