Agaricus blazei Murill is a mushroom largely consumed due to its medicinal properties. Effects of aqueous extract from its lineage AB97/11 in 2 fruiting body development stages (closed and opened pileus) were evaluated on chinese hamster V79 cells using cytokinesis blocking micronucleus (CBMN) and comet assays. The cells were treated at 0.15% concentration of aqueous extract prepared at different temperatures: ice-cold (4°C), room temperature (21°C) and warm (60°C). The extracts were applied in… CONTINUE READING
