The interaction of polysaccharide from Auricularia polytricha with quantum dots and the protection of plasmid DNA from damage.

As a kind of folk medicine, edible mushrooms are known to be of medicinal characteristics, for example antitumor activity. However, the mechanism is not clear. In this study, the fluorescence (FL) spectroscopy was used to study the binding reactions of polysaccharide extracted from Auricularia polytricha with quantum dots (QDs). The modified Stern-Volmer… CONTINUE READING
