Clitopilus pinsitus protoplast was irradiated by 12C6+ ion beam at varied absorbed doses for mutagenesis, and high-yielding pleuromutilin mutant strains were screened using high-throughput method and solid fermentation. The results showed that the optimum 12C6+ ion beam absorbed dose is 1.5 Gy, and under this condition the positive mutation rate is 37.58%. By agar column prescreening and 96-plate solid fermentation, the mutant strains, C.pin15I5E and C.pin15II6B, were selected. The yields of the strain increased by 16.17% and 15.47%, respectively, compared with that of the original strain. The research suggests that applying heavy ion irradiation to protoplast is a possible method to breed mutant strains.
