  • The hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer (EBP) produced from a submerged mycelial culture of the mushroom fungus, Auricularia polytricha, was investigated in the dietary-induced hyperlipidemic rats. In a dose-dependent study, the EBP was fed at 50–100 mg kg−1 body weight and significantly decreased the concentrations of the plasma triacylglycerols, total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. The plasma LDL cholesterol concentration was decreased up to 70%. Production… CONTINUE READING
