G. g. , 1998). , 1998). Enzyme activity Biochemical tests for a wide range of extracellular enzymes exist, but most involve addition of a substrate so that, although useful in laboratory studies, they measure potential rather than actual activity, as do the majority of the tests in the previous section. The range of enzymes produced from a single fungus can be great, for example, 18 types of extracellular enzyme from Agaricus bisporus (the commercial white mushroom) have been detected in compost cultures (Wood, 1998).
