The Versatile Functions of G. Lucidum Polysaccharides and G. Lucidum Triterpenes in Cancer Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy

A review of complex molecules from G. lucidum that synergizes with radiotherapy and chemotherapy through multiple pathways, including oxidative stress, apoptosis, immune microenvironment, etc, in order to create more treatment options for cancer patients in the future.

Extraction, Structures, Bioactivities and Structure-Function Analysis of the Polysaccharides From Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.)

This paper aims to systematically review the research progress in extraction, purification, structural characteristics, and bioactivities of SPS and PBPC, and provide basis for the in-depth study about their structure-bioactivity relationship.

Health-Promoting of Polysaccharides Extracted from Ganoderma lucidum

In this review, the activity of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides (GLP) is summarized, which has antioxidant, immunomodulatory, antineurodegenerative and antidiabetic activities.

Ganoderma spp. polysaccharides are potential prebiotics: a review.

It was found that the physicochemical properties and biological activities of GPs depend on their structural characteristics, which affects the structure and bioactivities of polysaccharides and GPs can be considered as potential prebiotics.

Exploring the Protective and Reparative Mechanisms of G. lucidum Polysaccharides Against H2O2-Induced Oxidative Stress in Human Skin Fibroblasts

GLP could protect human skin fibroblasts from oxidative damage caused by H2O2 peroxide by enhancing enzyme activity and activating Keap1-Nrf2/ARE signaling pathway and will act as a natural antioxidant to protect the skin from oxidative stress damage.

Polysaccharide extracts from mycelia of Ganoderma australe: effect on dendritic cell immunomodulation and antioxidant activity

This is the first study reporting the ability of aqueous extracts of mycelial polysaccharides from G. australe to maturate and activate mouse DCs, as well as to prevent oxidation, encouraging further studies of the immunomodulatory and antioxidant effects of these compounds.

Extraction, Structural Characterization, and Immunomodulatory Activity of a High Molecular Weight Polysaccharide From Ganoderma lucidum

Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides (GLP) exhibited excellent immunomodulatory activity. Unfortunately, the structure and immunomodulatory activity of GLP are still unclear. GLP was separated into two



Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides: immunomodulation and potential anti-tumor activities.

This paper examines the potential role of G. lucidum polysaccharide (GLPS) in tumor therapy and the possible mechanisms involved and suggests that the anti-tumor activities of GLPS are mediated by its immunomodulatory, anti-angiogenic, and cytotoxic effects.
