Two new triterpenoids, (24E)-9α,11α-epoxy-3β-hydroxylanosta-7,24-dien-26-al (1) and (22Z,24Z)-13-hydroxy-3-oxo-14(13 → 12)abeo-lanosta-8,22,24-trien-26,23-olide (2) were isolated from dried fruiting bodies of fungus Ganoderma lucidum. The structures of these two new compounds were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analyses. Compound 1 possessed a lanostane skeleton, while compound 2 was based on a rare 14 (13 → 12)abeo-lanostane skeleton with a 26,23-olide moiety. Both of them… 
Lanostane triterpenoids from fruiting bodies of basidiomycete Stereum sp., structures and biological activities
Twelve new lanostane triterpenoids, sterenoids A–L (1–12) have been isolated from fruiting bodies of the basidiomycete Stereum sp. Compounds 1–12 are rare 14(13→︀12)abeo-lanostane triterpenoids
Inhibitory Effects of Highly Oxygenated Lanostane Derivatives from the Fungus Ganoderma lucidum on P-Glycoprotein and α-Glucosidase.
TLDR
In silico docking analysis suggested these compounds had similar P-gp recognition mechanisms compared with those of verapamil (a classical inhibitor), and in an in vitro bioassay, compounds 2, 4, 5, 6, and 18 showed moderate inhibitory effects against α-glucosidase compared withThose of the positive control acarbose.
Structure Identification and Anti-Cancer Pharmacological Prediction of Triterpenes from Ganoderma lucidum
TLDR
Results indicated that anti-cancer effect of GTs might be related to histone acetylation and interphase of mitotic cell cycle by regulating general control non-derepressible 5 (GCN5) and cyclin-dependent kinase-2 (CDK2), respectively.
Antioxidant and anti-tumour activity of triterpenoid compounds isolated from Morchella mycelium
TLDR
The results suggest that triterpenoid compounds from Morchella mycelium fermentation, which are found in functional foods and used in the field of pharmacology, might be excellent products for the treatment of cancer and age-related illnesses.
Screening and Analysis of the Marker Components in Ganoderma lucidum by HPLC and HPLC-MSn with the Aid of Chemometrics
TLDR
The results proved that fingerprints combined with chemometrics are a simple, rapid and effective method for the quality control of G. lucidum.
Lanostane Triterpenoids from Fruiting Bodies of Ganoderma leucocontextum
Six new lanostane-type triterpenoids, namely leucocontextins S–X (1–6), together with twelve known compounds, were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Ganoderma leucocontextum. Their structures were

TLDR
Data from in vitro and animal studies indicate that G. lucidum extracts (mainly polysaccharides or triterpenoids) exhibit protective activities against liver injury induced by toxic chemicals and may represent a promising approach for the management of various chronic hepatopathies.
Species clarification of the prize medicinal Ganoderma mushroom “Lingzhi”
TLDR
A new species G. lingzhi is proposed for “Lingzhi”, which has an East Asia distribution and the most striking characteristics which differentiate G. Lingzhi from G. lucidum are the presence of melanoid bands in the context, a yellow pore surface and thick dissepiments at maturity.

TLDR
Fifteen species, including Ganoderma lucidum, are the most important or commonly used medicinal fungi, and 26 species,including Agaricus bisporus, are commonly cultivated in China as food or for medicinal products.
Polypore diversity in China with an annotated checklist of Chinese polypores
TLDR
The majority of the Chinese polypores are white rot fungi, whereas 98 species (14%) cause a brown rot; 520 species (74%) were found on angiosperm wood, of which 434 species (62%) grew exclusively on angosperm wood; 459 species (65%)were found on fallen trunks, which seem to be the most frequent substrate for polypore species.
