One water-soluble polysaccharide (PEPw), with an average molecular weight of 2.5×10(4)Da, was isolated from the fruiting bodies of Pleurotus eryngii and subjected to composition analysis and evaluated for the antitumor and immunomodulatory activity. PEPw was composed of arabinose, mannose and galactose in a molar ratio of 1.2:2.3:6.2 and had a backbone… CONTINUE READING
