Hypoglycemic Effect of a Lentinus edodes Exo-polymer Producedfrom a Submerged Mycelial Culture
The hypoglycemic effect of an exo-polymer produced from a submerged mycelial culture of Lentinus edodes was investigated in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The administration of the exo-polymerExpand

Production of a hypoglycemic, extracellular polysaccharide from the submerged culture of the mushroom, Phellinus linteus
Mycelial growth and extracellular polysaccharide production of Phellinus linteus were optimal at pH 5 and 25 °C. Maximum biomass production (14.2 g l−1) was after 15 d of cultivation, whereas,Expand

Ascofuranone prevents ER stress-induced insulin resistance via activation of AMP-activated protein kinase in L6 myotube cells.
The current study presents that ascofuranone isolated from a phytopathogenic fungus, Ascochyta viciae, has antitumor activity against various transplantable tumors and a considerable hypolipidemicExpand

A preliminary study on the hypoglycemic effect of the exo-polymers produced by five different medicinal mushrooms
The hypoglycemic effect of exo-polymers (EPs) produced from submerged mycelial cultures of five types of mushrooms on streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats were investigated in this study. TheExpand
