Antrodia cinnamomea is a medicinal fungus that has been used in Taiwan as a traditional medicine for the treatment of tumorigenic diseases. We prove that controlling the culturing conditions (i.e., temperature and pH) and modifying the composition of the medium (i.e., carbon, nitrogen, mineral sources and vitamins) can dramatically enhance the production of the exopolysaccharide of A. cinnamomea. We have found that the temperature, initial pH, and agitation time are all critical for… CONTINUE READING
