Fitoterapia. 2004 Sep;75(6):603-5. doi: 10.1016/j.fitote.2004.06.005.

Abstract

Methanol extract and its fractions (CHCl3, n-BuOH and H2O) of the fruit body of Phellinus linteus mushroom were investigated for antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. The n-BuOH fraction showed a good antibacterial activity (MIC, 63-125 microg/ml) against all tested strains.
