  journal={Journal of Food and Drug Analysis},
The concentrations of adenosine and cordycepin, 3'-deoxyadenosine in the hot water extract and ergosterol in the ethanol extract of a cultivated Antrodia camphorata were measured by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method. The procedure were carried out on a reversed-phase C18 column by linear gradient elution, using four eluents as mobile phase and by isocratic elution, using 100% methanol as mobile phase, respectively. The analysis was completed within 20 min. The application of… Expand

Extraction of bioactive ingredients from fruiting bodies of Antrodia cinnamomea assisted by high hydrostatic pressure
High-pressure extraction can be employed as an efficient extraction technique for production of bioactive ingredients that might have a potential application in food and related industries and increased the mass-transfer effectiveness of the solvent and solute. Expand
Effects of Acremonium terricola culture supplementation on apparent digestibility, rumen fermentation, and blood parameters in dairy cows
Overall, ATC is an effective feed additive and regulates apparent digestibility, rumen fermentation, and blood metabolism for dairy cows. Expand
Effects of spent mushroom Cordyceps militaris supplementation on apparent digestibility, rumen fermentation, and blood metabolite parameters of goats.
It could be concluded that supplementing goat diets with SMCM at 100 to 200 g/d results in improved apparent digestibility of nutrients and blood metabolites, suggesting that SMCM has positive functions as a feed additive to improve energy substance metabolism and contribute to glyconeogenesis.

Acremonium terricola culture plays anti-inflammatory and antioxidant roles by modulating MAPK signaling pathways in rats with lipopolysaccharide-induced mastitis
ATC was shown to exert its anti-inflammatory effect by blocking mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathways and suppressing the expression of toll-like receptor 4, phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase, and activity of c-Jun N-terminal kinase in the LPS-stimulated mastitis model.

Effects of Acremonium terricola culture on performance, milk composition, rumen fermentation and immune functions in dairy cows
Results show that feeding ATC can increase performance, improve rumen fermentation, and increase antioxidant and immune functions in dairy cows, when fed up to 30 g/d. Expand
Effect of Static Magnetic Field on Monascus ruber M7 Based on Transcriptome Analysis
The results revealed that, compared with the control, the SMF at all tested intensities did not significantly influence the morphological characteristics of M. ruber M7, while the intracellular and extracellular Monascus pigments and CIT were increased at 10 and 30 mT SMF, and the transcriptional levels of the related genes to the biosynthetic pathways of MPs, CIT, and ergosterol were increased.

Strain modification including 60Co γ-ray and ultraviolet irradiation were employed to increase the cordycepin titer, resulting in a high-yield mutant strain P. hepiali ZJB18001, which is beneficial in terms of costs and time for the industrialization of cordYcepin production. Expand


[Physiologically active compounds in the extracts from tochukaso and cultured mycelia of Cordyceps and Isaria].
Three extracts from Tochukaso showed inhibitory action on twitch response of guinea-pig ileum and aggregation of human blood platelet and it is suggested that these activities are ascribed to the combination of adenosine, 5'-adenosine monophosphate and several other nucleic acid-related compounds, all of which have been shown to be present in the extracts.

Fundamental Procedures for Determining Ergosterol Content of Decaying Plant Material by Liquid Chromatography
Common methods of treatment of plant samples prior to sterol extraction led to reduced recoveries of ergosterol, but the least destructive method was direct placement and storage in methanol. Expand

A critical assessment of the validity of ergosterol as an indicator of fungal biomass
Even when studying assemblages of species for which direct relationships between ergosterol and biomass occur, ergostol could still be an unreliable measure of total biomass, and this assay must therefore be viewed with caution. Expand
The extraction and quantification of ergosterol from ectomycorrhizal fungi and roots
Ergosterol was produced in all isolates examined, which represented the major orders of ectomycorrhizal fungi, and Calculations of viable fungal biomass associated with field-collected roots were in agreement with those reported by others using the method on resynthesized ectomy Corrhizae. Expand

Ergosterol Content of Salt-Marsh Fungi: Effect of Growth Conditions and Mycelial Age
For any single growth medium, ergosterol content of mycelium was less variable with mycelial age than has been previously found for glucosamine, and there was evidence that green-microalgal ergostol content might not be negligible in some decomposition systems. Expand
