Trametes Versicolor; Turkey-tail

Trametes Versicolor or commonly known as Turkey-tail is a tree rot that can be found throughout the world and have been used by humans for centuries for their medicinal properties, with cancer-fighting properties being claimed and studied. Through my research I learnt that this species of fungus degrades lignin and other aromatic pollutants. The specific research paper I found focused on how copper and nitrogen limit the amount of laccase that is produced which is now being recognized to play a significant role in the degradation of the previously mentioned compounds. Another source showed that Trametes Versicolor may have aflatoxin inhibition abilities, which is a toxin produced from a mold that can grow on pet food and potentially cause illness and death when ingested.
