Mushroom - Saprotrophic nutrition

Saprotrophic nutrition [see also: photochemistry, photochemicals]

A Chemotroph, in contrast to phototrophs which use photons, is an organism that obtains energy by the oxidation of electron donors in their environments. These molecules can be organic or inorganic.
Chemotrophs can be either autotrophic or heterotrophic.

Chemoautotrophs, in addition to deriving energy from chemical reactions, synthesize all necessary organic compounds from carbon dioxide.
Chemoheterotrophs (or chemotrophic heterotrophs) are unable to fix carbon to form their own organic compounds.

Lysis /ˈlaɪsɪs/ is the breaking apart a larger particle into smaller pieces, say breaking down of the membrane of a cell, often by viral, enzymic, or osmotic ( "lytic") mechanisms.
Cell lysis is used in laboratories to break open cells and purify or further study their contents, as in protein purification, DNA extraction, RNA extraction, or in purifying organelles.

Saprotrophic nutrition (or lysotrophic nutrition), is a process of chemoheterotrophic extracellular digestion involved in the processing of decayed (dead or waste) organic matter.
