The structure of two polysaccharides isolated from the hot aqueous extract of fruiting bodies of the mushroom, Termitomyces eurhizus, have been reinvestigated. These consist of two homogeneous fractions PS-I and PS-II. PS-I contains only D-glucose as the monosaccharide constituent. From methylation analysis and periodate oxidation studies, followed by GLC-MS analysis the linkages, the sugar units in PS-I were identified as (1-->3)-D-Glcp and (1-->6)-D-Glcp. PS-II contains D-glucose, and the… CONTINUE READING
