The aim of the present study is to investigate the growth of mycelia in different solid media and determination of antibacterial and antioxidant activity of acetone, methanol and distilled water extracts of mycelia and fruiting bodies of Termitomyces eurhizus. The antioxidant and antibacterial activities were evaluated by using DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) free radical scavenging assay and Agar-well diffusion method respectively. Result showed that out of five different solid media, Hagems-Modess medium was found to be best solid medium for culturing the mycelia of T. eurhizus. Different extracts of fruiting bodies showed good antioxidant activity than the mycelial extracts. On the other hand, mycelial extracts exhibited significant antibacterial activity than the fruiting bodies extracts of T. eurhizus.
