Abstract Context: Recently, mushrooms are interesting natural products to be investigated due to exhibiting various bioactivities. Objective: This study determines the antioxidant and anticholinesterase activities of various extracts of five wild mushroom species. In addition, the total bioactive contents, namely, ascorbic acid, β-carotene, and lycopene along with phenolic and flavonoid contents were also determined spectrophotometrically. Materials and methods: Antioxidant activity was tested… 
Comparison of antioxidant capacities of two Ganoderma lucidum strains of different geographical origins
Results showed that examined G. lucidum extracts contain high amount of phenolic content which could significantly enhance the antiradical potential and reduce potential on iron ions, and these extracts could be considered as a good source of natural antioxidants.
HPLC–DAD characterization of phenolic profile and in vitro antioxidant, anticholinesterase, and antidiabetic activities of five mushroom species from Turkey
