A Novel Core Fucose-specific Lectin from the Mushroom Pholiota squarrosa
TLDR
The purified lectin was designated as PhoSL, which will be a promising tool for analyzing the biological functions of α1–6 fucosylation and evaluating Fucα1– 6 oligosaccharides as cancer biomarkers.

Detoxification of aflatoxin B1 by manganese peroxidase from the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete sordida YK-624.
TLDR
This is the first report that MnP can effectively remove the mutagenic activity of AFB (1) by converting it into AFB(1) -8,9-dihydrodiol.
Antitumor‐active substances from mushrooms
TLDR
In Japan three different polysaccharide antitumor agents have been isolated from the fruiting body, mycelium, and cultured medium, from three mushroom species.
Purification, Characterization, and cDNA Cloning of a Lectin from the Mushroom Pleurocybella porrigens
TLDR
This is the first report of isolation of a lectin of the genus Pleurocybella, and PPL exhibited the strongest binding specificity toward GalNAc among the mono- and oligo-saccharides tested.
Two Novel Diterpenoids, Erinacines H and I from the Mycelia of Hericium erinaceum
TLDR
Novel diterpenoids, erinacines H and I, were isolated from the cultured mycelia of Hericium erinaceum and showed stimulating activity of nerve growth factor (NGF)-synthesis.
ERINACINE D, A STIMULATOR OF NGF-SYNTHESIS, FROM THE MYCELIA OF HERICIUM ERINACEUM
TLDR
A novel diterpenoid, erinacine D, was isolated from the cultured mycelia of Hericium erinaceum and showed stimulating activity of nerve growth factor (NGF)synthesis.
