The anti-complementary activity (immunostimulating activity) was tested for the exo-polymers (extracellular polymer) produced from submerged mycelial cultures of 21 types of higher fungi. Anti-complementary activity of the exo-polymer from Cordyceps militaris showed the highest (69.0%) followed by Pleurotus ostreatus (63.7%) and Trametes suaveolens (61.4%). The mycelial growth rate and biomass doubling time of C. militaris in a 5 1 air-lift fermenter were 0.0255 h -1 and 27.2 h, respectively… 
Production of Anti-Complementary Exopolysaccharides from Submerged Culture of Flammulina velutipes
Results of tests on the anti-complementary activity in the absence of Ca 2+ and immunoelectrophoresis indicated that the mode of complement activation by exopolysaccharide from F. velutipes is via both the classical and alternative pathways and that the activation degree is almost the same in each pathway.
Optimization of mycelium biomass and exopolysaccharides production by Hirsutella sp . in submerged fermentation and evaluation of exopolysaccharides antibacterial activity
EPS was observed that they were most effective against gram-positive bacterium, especially Bacillus subtilis and Micrococcus tetragenus, and the antibacterial activity of exopolysaccharides (EPS) from Hirsutella sp.
Production of Cordycepin and Mycelia by Submerged Fermentation of Cordyceps militaris in Mixture Natural Culture
The experiments’ results indicated that the above mixture of brown rice paste, beerwort, and soybean meal juice by D-optional mixture design can be used as a proper medium for the growth of mycelium and the production of cordycepin.
Production and Characterization of Exopolysaccharides from an Enthomopathogenic Fungus Cordycepsmilitaris NG3
Optimization of the submerged culture conditions for the mycelial growth and production of exopolysaccharide (EPS) from a newly isolated Cordycepsspecies was studied in flask cultures and there was a distinguishable morphological changes in mycelium grown between organic and inorganic nitrogen sources.
Salinity-Induced Anti-Angiogenesis Activities and Structural Changes of the Polysaccharides from Cultured Cordyceps Militaris
The data showed that culturing C. Militaris with added salts changed the biosynthetic scheme and resulted in novel polysaccharide structures and functions, which might be insightful in terms of how to make C.Militaris cultures to reach or to exceed the potency of wild Cordyceps in future.
Anti-complementary Activities of Exo- and Endo-biopolymer Produced by Submerged Mycelial Culture of Eight Different Mushrooms
The Elfringia applanata (EA), Hericium erinaceum (HE), Grifola frondosa (GF), Pholiota nameko (PN), Pleurotus eiyngii (PE), Trameles suaveolens (TS), Fomes fomentarais (FF), and Inonotus obliquus
