Abstract
Abstract Cordyceps militaris is a unique and precious medical fungus in Chinese Cordyceps, which has been widely used as the traditional medicines or as biocontrol agents against pests in China for centuries. Polysaccharides are one of bioactive constituents in Cordyceps militaris with a variety of biological activities, including immunomodulation, antioxidant, anti-tumor, and anti-aging activities, among others. However, natural Cordyceps militaris are very rare and expensive, most of literatures indicated that the polysaccharides were mostly extracted from artificially cultivated fungal fruiting bodies (intracellular polysaccharides) or mycelia fermentation broths (extracellular polysaccharides). Moreover, separation and purification of polysaccharides was a very complicated and cumbersome process. Nevertheless, a large number of polysaccharides were purified and its characterization was elucidated by structure and biological activities. However, the relationship between structure and activity of polysaccharides has not been well established. Therefore, this review detailed the recent advance in several aspects (i.e., extraction, isolation, structure, and bioactivities) of the polysaccharides from fruiting body of Cordyceps militaris . This information could provide theoretical basis for the research on related polysaccharides, and also have important reference value in the field of functional foods and medicine in the future.

Abstract A comparison of the anti-tumor activity of CMPS-II and CBPS-II polysaccharides, respectively is obtained from the fermented mycelium and cultivated fruiting bodies of Cordyceps militaris. This in vitro anti-tumor activity is investigated using an MTT assay, immunofluorescence staining, a Western Blot assay, a qRT-PCR assay, and Annexin V-FITC/PI double staining. The experimental results indicate that the inhibition rate of CMPS-II on H1299 tumor cells is higher than that of CBPS-II. Wit...

Drying is an important method in the preservation of food and plant materials. The effects of sun-drying (SD), freeze-drying (FD), hot air drying (50 °C, 70 °C; HD) and microwave drying (420 W, 700 W; MD) on the physiochemical properties and antioxidant activities of Cordyceps militaris were examined. Results showed that freeze-drying led to the lowest color difference and maintained more cordycepin and polysaccharide. Microwave drying at 700 W helped to preserve larger amounts of phenolic compo...

Abstract In the present study, we investigated the effects of subcritical water microenvironment on the structure and biological activities of polysaccharides from Lentinus edodes. The results showed that, under different SWE conditions (100–150 °C for 15 min, and 150 °C for 10–30 min), all the polysaccharides were heteropolysaccharides and consisted of glucose, mannose and galactose with different molar ratios. In addition, FT-IR results showed that all samples were typical β-pyranose and prote...

Abstract The arrowhead has attracted great research interest for their potential applications in pharmacy, food and biomedical areas. However, no information is reported about the nature and structure of the arrowhead protein (AP). Herein, effects of slit divergent ultrasound (28, 33, 40 KHz frequencies at 30–50 °C) and enzymatic (pepsin, trypsin, and alcalase) treatment on structure of AP were studied. In addition, changes in antioxidant activity of AP treated with ultrasound and enzymes were m...

Abstract Bioactive compounds in cash crops can be obtained from horticulture, oil and medicinal crops sources. Conventional extraction methods have disadvantages such as low extraction rate, large solvent consumption, high energy consumption and long production cycle. Ultrasonic-assisted extraction is a novel, green and rapid developing technology, which is suitable for up scaling and improving the extraction efficiency of bioactive compounds. Ultrasound mainly acts by producing cavitation bubbl...

Abstract Some studies have demonstrated that polysaccharides are the chief ingredient of Lentinus edodes . To extract the useful polysaccharides from Lentinus edodes , we used a novel extraction method, which was named ultrasonic-enhanced subcritical water extraction by two steps (USWE). Four independent factors (extraction temperature, extraction time, liquid-to-solid ratio, and ultrasonic power) were studied. A Box-Behnken design (BBD) was applied to optimize the USWE condition based on the re...

Abstract Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a fatal lung disease with growing prevalence. Currently available therapies for treating IPF are not desirable due to the limited efficacy and multiple side effects. Ophiocordyceps lanpingensis is one strain of entomogenous fungi, which has been collected from the eastern part of the Himalayas. This study revealed that O. lanpingensis polysaccharides (OLP) could attenuate bleomycin (BLM) induced lung fibrosis in mice. Results showed that OLP treatm...

Abstract Tumour-associated macrophages (TAMs) inhibit the killing effect of T lymphocytes on tumour cells through the immunocheckpoint programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1)/programmed death-1 (PD-1) axis. TAMs-targeted therapy i s a promising approach that could be used to reverse the immunosuppressive tumour microenvironment. Here, we further report CMPB90-1, a novel natural polysaccharide from Cordyceps militaris, could function as an anti-tumour modulator that resets TAMs from a tumour-promoting ...

In the study, the mechanism of cordycepin against breast cancer was explored. Effects of cordycepin on cell growth, apoptosis and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) were measured, in which the role of hedgehog(Hh) pathway was analyzed. Our results showed that cordycepin exhibited low toxicity but retained significant anticancer effects. Cordycepin-induced apoptosis showed increased PUMA, Cyto C, Fas, DR4/5, cleavaged-caspase-3 and decreased Bcl-2, XIAP and PDGFR-α expression. Cordycepin-inh...

Abstract A water-soluble neutral polysaccharide (SDQCP-1) was isolated from fruit bodies of Cordyceps militaris cultivated on hull-less barley. SDQCP-1 was composed of mannose, glucose and galactose in the mole ratio of 13.3:1.0:9.7, with an average molecular weight of 19.3 kDa. Based on results from methylation analysis, GC–MS and NMR, SDQCP-1 was elucidated to be a glucogalactomannan with a backbone composed of (1→2)-α-D-Manp (48.4 %) and (1 → 4)-β-D-Glcp (1.2 %) residues. Its side chains were...
