Extraction, structure and bioactivities of the polysaccharides from Pleurotus eryngii: A review

Int J Biol Macromol. 2020 May 1;150:1342-1347. doi: 10.1016/j.ijbiomac.2019.10.144. Epub 2019 Nov 20.

Abstract

Pleurotus eryngii (also known as king trumpet mushroom or king oyster mushroom) is an edible mushroom cultivated widely in many regions of the world. Polysaccharides from P. eryngii have a variety of biological activities, including anti-oxidant, anti-hyperlipidemic, anti-tumor, immunoregulatory and bacteriostatic. This paper reviews the extraction/purification, structural analysis and pharmacological activities of polysaccharides from this mushroom and provides updated research progress in areas important for the processing and product development of P. eryngii derived agents.

Keywords: Bioactivity; Pleurotus eryngii; Polysaccharide.
