  author={P. Vasanth Raj and S. A. Dhanaraj and Syed Atif Ali and Tan Hooi Kuan and Shivanashini Mathiyalagan and S. Pattabi Raman},
Objectives: To evaluate the anti-cancer activity of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide (GLPS) and tritrepenoid fraction (GLTT), against five different cell lines. Methods: The collected Ganoderma lucidum was authenticated and extracted with water and methanol to obtain GLPS and GLTT fractions. Cell lines (Vero, MCF-7, HEp-2, HeLa and A-549) were cultured and maintained as per standard procedure. Anti-proliferative activity of GLPS and GLTT were studied by standard MTT and SRB assays. Long term… Expand

Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides target a Fas/caspase dependent pathway to induce apoptosis in human colon cancer cells.
It is demonstrated for the first time that GLP shows prominent anticancer activities against the HCT-116 human colon cancer cell line through triggering intracellular calcium release and the death receptor pathway. Expand
Triterpenoids from Ganoderma lucidum and their cytotoxic activities
From the ethyl acetate fraction of the fruiting body of Ganoderma lucidum, a new triterpenoid, ethyl 7β-hydroxy-4,4,14α-trimethyl-3,11,15-trioxo-5α-chol-8-en-24-oate (4), named ethyl lucidenates A,Expand
The polysaccharides from Ganoderma lucidum: Are they always inhibitors on human hepatocarcinoma cells?
The intracellular polysaccharides inhibited other human hepatocarcinoma cells but luckily stimulated human normal liver cell L02 only in a positive dose- and time-dependent manner; so did the sulfated extracellular poly Saccharides when it inhibited HepG2 and L02 cells. Expand
Optimization extraction of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides and its immunity and antioxidant activities.
Findings show that GLP can enhance immunity and antioxidant activities in gastric cancer rats and improve the levels of serum and gastric tissue SOD, CAT and GSH-Px toward the control values in a dose-dependent manner. Expand
A detailed comparative study between chemical and bioactive properties of Ganoderma lucidum from different origins
This is the first study reporting a comparison of chemical compounds and bioactivity of G. lucidum samples from different origins, which revealed higher antioxidant activity, while GS exhibited inhibitory potential against human breast and cervical carcinoma cell lines. Expand
Polysaccharides isolated from Ganoderma lucidum occurring in Southern parts of India, protects radiation induced damages both in vitro and in vivo.
The findings suggest the potential use of Ganoderma polysaccharides as novel radioprotective agent and indicate the significant protective effect of Ganodma poly Saccharides against radiation induced damages. Expand
Antioxidant activity and toxicity profile of total triterpenes isolated from Ganoderma lucidum (Fr.) P. Karst occurring in South India.
The ability of total triterpenes to scavenge the free radicals and to enhance body's antioxidant defence systems indicates its potential use as an antioxidant. Expand
Cytotoxic lanostanoid triterpenes from Ganoderma lucidum
The cytotoxic assay of the above compounds against p388, Hela, BEL-7402, and SGC-7901 human cancer cell lines showed their cytotoxicity with the IC50 values in the range of 8–25 μm. Expand
In vitro and in vivo antioxidant potentials of an ethanolic extract of Ganoderma lucidum in rat mammary carcinogenesis.
