β-Glucans of Agaricus brasiliensis fruiting bodies in different stages of maturity were isolated and characterized by FTIR and NMR. These fractions had greater amount of (1→6)-β-glucan and the (1→3)-β-glucan increased with fruiting bodies maturation. Yields of β-glucans increased from 42 mg β-glucans  g−1 fruiting bodies (dry wt) in immature stage to 43 mg g−1 in mature stage with immature spores, and decreased to 40 mg g−1 in mature stage with spore maturation. Mature fruiting bodies, which… CONTINUE READING
