Strains ofwere analyzed for total phenolic content, Trolox antioxidant equivalent, DPPH radical scavenging and antibacterial activities. The amplification of the ribosomal DNA-ITS fragments from DNA of selected mushrooms was carried out using ITS1 and ITS4 primers. The antibacterial activity of phenolic extracts ofwas comparable to the antibiotics, ceftazidime and erythromycin.extracts inhibited the growth of the different strains of,,, andtested in this study.
