Exo-polymer (EP) was produced at 1.2 g l−1 in submerged culture of Auricular auricula-judae. Crude EP (AJ-0) has 70% anti-complementary activity (inhibition of total complementary hemolysis 50%; ITCH50). The activating pathway of the complement system occurred through both the classical and alternative pathways, though the major pathway was the classical one. Fractionation of AJ-0 using Sepharose CL-6B gel chromatography gave three major fractions (AJ-Fr-I, II and III) of which the first was… 
Production and Characterization of Melanin by Submerged Culture of Culinary and Medicinal Fungi Auricularia auricula
TLDR
Large-scale production of natural melanin by submerged culture of A. auricular could be a useful approach, and glucose, tyrosine, peptone, and CaCO3 were found to have significant effects on melanin biosynthesis.
Hypolipidemic Effects of Biopolymers Extracted from Culture Broth, Mycelia, and Fruiting Bodies of Auricularia auricula-judae in Dietary-induced Hyperlipidemic Rats
TLDR
Hypolipidemic effect of biopolymers extracted from culture broth, mycelia, and fruiting bodies of Auricularia auricula-judae was investigated in dietary-induced hyperlipidemic rats, and FP was proved to be the most potent one.

TLDR
The polysaccharide fraction from the leaves of ARTEMISIA PRINCEPS Pamp (Japanese name = Gaiyō) showed a potent anti-complementary activity and AAF-IIb-2 was shown to have the more potent activity.

Immuno-stimulating Activity of Phellinus linteus
TLDR
Anti-complementary (immuno-stimulating) activities of the polymers produced from submerged mycelial culture, natural and artificially cultivated basidiocarps of Phellinus linteus were compared.
Polysaccharides in fungi. XIV. Anti-inflammatory effect of the polysaccharides from the fruit bodies of several fungi.
TLDR
T-2-HN has more potent anti-inflammatory activity than phenylbutazone in the above two inflammatory models and it is clear that anti- inflammatory effect arises from the polysaccharide itself.
Hypoglycemic effect of water-soluble polysaccharide from Auricularia auricula-judae Quel. on genetically diabetic KK-Ay mice.
TLDR
It is shown that FA had a Hypoglycemic effect on KK-Ay mice, and the reduced food consumption was not a major factor which contributed to the hypoglycemic action of FA.

A gas chromatographic method for the determination of aldose and uronic Acid constituents of plant cell wall polysaccharides.
TLDR
Galacturonic acid is found to be a major component of all the cell wall polysaccharides examined, and this technique has been used to determine the changes in composition of Red Kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) hypocotyl cell walls during growth, and to compare thecell wall poly Saccharide compositions of several parts of bean plants.
Activation of the alternate pathway of human complements by rabbit cells.
TLDR
Findings show that a rabbit cell surface component can activate the alternate pathway of complement in human serum and suggest that this activation does not involve antibody.
