Abstract Cordyceps militaris has been artificially cultivated in China, and the great amounts of produced medium residue were discarded after the harvest. The aims of this work were to analyze the structure of the residue polysaccharide (RPS) of C. militaris SU-12, and to investigate the pharmacological effects of RPS on lipid metabolism and oxidative stress. RPS was composed of glucose, arabinose and mannose with a ratio of 62:1.6:1 by gas chromatography analysis, and the Mw (weight-average molecular weight), Mn (number-average molecular weight) and Mz ( z -average molecular weight) of RPS were 2.86 × 10 3 , 6.85 × 10 2 , and 1.97 × 10 4  Da, respectively. The mice experiments demonstrated that RPS could reduce the levels of blood and liver lipid, and improve the glutamate pyruvate transaminase and antioxidant activity. The histopathological observations of mice livers indicated that RPS could attenuate liver cell injury. Results suggest that the RPS might be used as a potential antihyperlipidemic, hepatoprotective and antioxidant product.

Vaccinium bracteatum Thunb. (VBT) is a traditional Chinese herbal medicine. The anti-diabetic activity of VBT leaves’ polysaccharide (VBTLP) is studied in this paper. The results indicated VBTLP had a dose-dependent decrease on the blood glucose (BG) level, and the time effect of VBTLP on BG level was also significant. The insulin level of high dose group (HDG) was significantly higher (p < 0.05) than that of model control (MC) group. Compared to MC, HDG and lose dose group (LDG) had significant...

Abstract Diabetes mellitus is a group of complicated metabolic disorders characterized by high blood glucose level and inappropriate insulin secreting capacity due to decreased glucose metabolism and pancreatic β cell mass or dysfunction of β cells. Thus, improving glucose metabolism and preserving β cell mass and function might be useful for the treatment of diabetes. In this study, a novel acidic polysaccharide LBP-s-1 extracted from Lycium barbarum L. was obtained by purification using macrop...

Cordyceps militaris dried fruiting bodies were extracted with 5% KOH solution. The extract was purified by freeze-thawing treatment, and dialysis (100 kDa), giving rise to a homogeneous polysaccharide (M-w 23,000 Da). Its monosaccharide composition was mannose (56.7%), galactose (34.5%), and glucose (8.8%). The anomeric configurations were determined by their coupling constants. A complex polysaccharide was identified by NMR and methylation analysis. The HSQC spectrum showed signals at delta 107...

Abstract Process conditions (extraction time, extraction temperature, water/solid ratio and incubation time) of Shiitake mushroom polysaccharides (SMP) were optimized by conducting experiments at three different levels using the response surface method (RSM). A second-order polynomial response surface equation was developed indicating the effect of variables on polysaccharides yield. Contour maps generated using the response surface equation showed that all the experimental variables significant...

Abstract The feasibility of using Aspergillus oryzae NCH 42, an extracellular tannase-producing fungus, for increasing the utilization of extraction residues of Chinese herbal medicines (CHMs) was evaluated in this study. Four types of CHMs, including Trichosanthes kirilowii Maxim, Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge, Magnolia officinalis and Glycyrrhizae radix , were used. Their aqueous extraction residues were inoculated with A. oryzae NCH 42, and solid-state fermentation was performed for 5 days at 30 °C...

Abstract Polysaccharides (AJP) were prepared from Apostichopus japonicus by protease hydrolysis method. Antioxidant activity in vitro and antihyperlipidemic activity in vivo was investigated. Chemical composition analysis indicated that AJP was mainly composed of glucosamine, galactosamine, glucuronic acid, mannose, glucose, galactose and fucose, with an average molecular weight of about 36.2 kDa. The antioxidant capacities of AJP were, respectively, evaluated by the assays of scavenging DPPH, h...

The anti-hyperlipidemic and antioxidant effects of haw pectic oligosaccharide (HPOS) were investigated using a model of hyperlipidemia induced by a high-fat diet in mice. HPOS significantly lowered the serum levels of total cholesterol (p < 0.01) and triglycerides (p < 0.05) and inhibited the accumulation of body fat in this model. It significantly enhanced the activity of superoxide dismutase to suppress oxidative reactions (p < 0.01) and inhibited the synthesis and accumulation of malondialdeh...
