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 and a single peak was found to have been a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of 52kDa.
Hypolipidemic Effect of an Exo-biopolymer Produced from a Submerged Mycelial Culture of Hericium erinaceus
The hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer produced from a submerged mycelial culture of Hericium erinaceus was investigated in dietary-induced hyperlipidemic rats. Hypolipidemic effects were
Production of a hypoglycemic, extracellular polysaccharide from the submerged culture of the mushroom, Phellinus linteus
The results indicate the potential of this polysaccharide to prevent hyperglycemia in diabetic patients and the hypoglycemic effect of the poly Saccharide, investigated in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
Hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer produced from submerged mycelial culture of Auricularia polytricha in rats
The hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer (EBP) produced from a submerged mycelial culture of the mushroom fungus, Auricularia polytricha, was investigated in the dietary-induced hyperlipidemic
Ganoderma applanatum: a promising mushroom for antitumor and immunomodulating activity
The antitumor effect of exo‐biopolymer (EXP) produced by Ganoderma applanatum was investigated using sarcoma‐180 bearing mice and found to be highly effective, as it reduced the tumor formation and increased the NK cell activity of splenocytes.
The Anti-complementary Activity of Exo-polymers Produced from Submerged Mycelial Cultures of Higher Fungi with Particular Reference to Cordyceps militaris
The anti-complementary activity (immunostimulating activity) was tested for the exo-polymers produced from submerged mycelial cultures of 21 types of higher fungi and Cordyceps militaris showed the highest (69.0%) followed by Pleurotus ostreatus (63.7%) and Trametes suaveolens (61.4%).
Hypolipidemic Effect of Exo- and Endo-Biopolymers Produced from Submerged Mycelial Culture of Ganoderma lucidum in Rats
Hypolipidemic effects were achieved in both the EXBP- and ENBP-treated groups, however, the former proved to be more potent than the former, and the high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and ratio of HDL cholesterol to total cholesterol were significantly increased.
