Mushroom dietary fiber or nonstarch polysaccharides (NSPs) that were soluble in hot alkali and belonged to the beta-glucan type were isolated from the sclerotia of an edible mushroom, Pleurotus tuber-regium. The mushroom NSPs were further separated into a number of fractions [hot alkali extracts (HAEs)] with weight-average molecular weights (M(w)) ranging from 1 x 10(4) to 42.2 x 10(4). The HAE fractions [with M(w) of (5.8-17.1) x 10(4)] administered intraperitoneally at a dose of 20 mg/kg of… CONTINUE READING
