A new Grifola frondosa mutant, M270, was successfully isolated for high production of exopolysaccharides (EPSs) using cosmic radiation-induced mutagenesis. We found that the mutant M270 had a clearer and thicker EPS layer (~10 µm) adhering to mycelia than those of its parent strain 265 after Congo red staining. In the 20-L batch fermentation for M270, 10.3(More)
Inonotus sanghuang, an authentic "Sanghuang" mushroom used in traditional Chinese medicine, is known to possess important pharmacological activities. In this study, we aimed to optimize the liquid fermentation medium for I. sanghuang mycelial production and to determine the effects of two-stage cultivation (shake and static) on the yield of total(More)
The immunomodulatory effect of polysaccharides extracted from mycelia of the medicinal mushroom Antrodia camphorata in submerged culture was studied in 100 specific pathogen-free (SPF) chickens. The chickens were randomly divided into 2 groups (50 per group). For the treated group, each kilogram of SPF chickens was fed 5 mg of A. camphorata extract (ACE)(More)
Seven natural products, including one new sesquiterpenoid (eudesm-1β, 6α, 11-triol, compound 1), one ergosta -4, 6, 8(14), 22-tetraen-3-one (compound 2), four polyphenols (compounds 3, 4, 5, 6), and one pyrone (3-hydroxy-2-methyl-4-pyrone, compound 7) were isolated from cultures of Phellinus ignarius by column chromatography. The detailed structure of(More)
