The aim of this study was to investigate the anti-inflammatory activity of a previously un-studied wild mushroom, Echinodontium tinctorium, collected from the forests of north-central British Columbia. The lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced RAW264.7 macrophage model was used to study the in vitro anti-inflammatory activity. The crude alkaline extract demonstrated potent anti-inflammatory activity, and was further purified using a “bio-activity-guided-purification” approach. The size-exclusion and ...

Abstract A growth-inhibitory polysaccharide (GIPinv) was purified using size-exclusion and ion-exchange chromatography from the fourth sodium hydroxide extraction step of a fungus found in British Columbia. The fungus was genetically identified as a member of the Paxillus involutus complex. GIPinv has an average molecular weight of 229 kDa and is a heteroglycan composed of glucose (65.9%), galactose (20.8%), mannose (7.8%), fucose (3.2%) and xylose (2.3%). GC–MS methylation analysis suggests tha...

Wild mushrooms, especially from North America, have not been systematically explored for their medicinal properties. Here we report screening for the growth-inhibitory and immunomodulatory activities of 12 species collected from multiple locations in north-central British Columbia, Canada. Mushrooms were characterized using morphology and DNA sequencing, followed by chemical extraction into 4 fractions using 80% ethanol, 50% methanol, water, and 5% sodium hydroxide. Growth-inhibitory, immunostim...
