The Elfringia applanata (EA), Hericium erinaceum (HE), Grifola frondosa (GF), Pholiota nameko (PN), Pleurotus eiyngii (PE), Trameles suaveolens (TS), Fomes fomentarais (FF), and Inonotus obliquus (IO) could produce the endo(EN) and exo-biopolymer (EX) in submerged culture. The highest anti-complementary activity of the EN was exhibited by PN (49.1%), followed by HE (38.6%), TS (37.0%), and FF (33.0%), whereas the high activity of the EX was found with GF (59.8%), followed by HE (363%), TS (30.8… 
Constituents from the Fruiting Bodies of Trametes cubensis and Trametes suaveolens in Vietnam and Their Anti-Inflammatory Bioactivity
The extracts and isolated compounds from T. cubensis and T. suaveolens are potential candidates for the further development of new anti-inflammatory lead drugs or natural healthy foods.


Immunomodulating Activity of the Exopolymer from Submerged Mycelial Culture of Phellinus pini
The immunomodulating activities and chemical characteristics of a water-soluble exopolymer from submerged mycelial culture of Phellinus pini were studied and its activation system occurred through both classical and alternative pathways, where the classical pathway was detected to be the major one by crossed immunoelectrophoresis.
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%).
Anti-Complementary Properties of Polysaccharides Isolated from Fruit Bodies of Mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus
A high molecular-weight water-soluble fraction (PO) obtained by the ethanol precipitation of 0.1 N NaOH extracts of the mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus showed 82% anti-complementary activity for
Anti-complementary activity of endopolymers produced from submerged mycelial culture of higher fungi with particular reference to Lentinus edodes
The anti-complementary activity (immuno-stimulating activity) of endo-polymer produced from submerged mycelial cultures of 21 types of higher fungi showed the highest (85%) followed by Flammulina velutipes and Phellinus linteus.
Antitumor and immunomodulating activities of a beta-glucan obtained from liquid-cultured Grifola frondosa.
It was found that LELFD could activate the alternative complement pathway and enhanced the antibody response when it was injected i.p. with sheep red blood cells into mice.
Fractionation and purification of the polysaccharides with marked antitumor activity, especially lentinan, from Lentinus edodes (Berk.) Sing. (an edible mushroom).
The first two polysaccharide preparations have a strong antitumor effect; lentinan, especially, markedly inhibited the growth of Sarcoma 180 implanted s.c. in mice, inducing almost complete regression of tumors at doses of 1 mg/kg × 10 with no sign of toxicity.
Fractionation and characterization of mitogenic and anti-complementary active fractions from kampo (Japanese Herbal) medicine "juzen-taiho-to".
"Juzen-Taiho-To" (TJ-48), which is a kampo (Japanese herbal) medicine prepared by decocting a prescription of ten kinds of herbs, has several immunostimulating activities. In order to characterize
Lectins from mushrooms
This review summarizes existing information about mushroom lectins, with an emphasis on those from the following species which have been most extensively characterized including various Agaricus
