Biopolymer of chitin and chitosan were extracted from the two Pleurotus spp. of
P.floridanus and P.djamor. After the optimization, genomic DNA was isolated, and by using
ITS 1 and ITS 4 primers molecular identification was carried out and the nucleotides were
submitted to NCBI. The biopolymer have a great commercial importance now a days because
of it high efficiency in all the field. The present study was focused on to extract the chitin
and chitosan from the Pleurotus spp. and these polymer was subjected to analysis the total
antioxidant activity, antimicrobial activity against food borne pathogens of E.coli, B. cereus,
S.aureus, A.niger and A.flavus. Cytotoxicity study against HeLa Cell Line was also performed
to study the efficacy of the extracted polymer.
