TL;DR: In this article, the in vitro antioxidant activities of petroleum ether (PE) and methanolic extracts of the edible wild mushrooms were comparable to the cultivated oyster mushroom, and the radical scavenging activity was the highest in PE extract of Pleurotus porrigens (angel's wings) (85%), while methenolic extract of Hygrocybe conica (witch's hat mushroom) exhibited the highest (94%) chelating effect at 20mg/ml.

TL;DR: Of the extracts screened, those from Laetiporus sulphureus, Tylopilus felleus and Hygrocybe conica exhibited the highest lipase inhibitory activities, and were screened for inhibition of pancreatic lipase using the chromogenic substrate p‐nitrophenylpalmitate.
Abstract: A total of 120 methanol and dichloromethane extracts, from 60 species of wood-damaging fungi and 50 methanol/water extracts from macrofungi were screened for inhibition of pancreatic lipase using the chromogenic substrate p-nitrophenylpalmitate. Of the extracts screened, those from Laetiporus sulphureus, Tylopilus felleus and Hygrocybe conica exhibited the highest lipase inhibitory activities of 83% ± 5%, 96% ± 3% and 97% ± 5%, respectively.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: 2,3- and 4,5-Secodopas were shown to be present in small concentrations in extracts from the coloured peels of Amanita muscaria and Hygrocybe conica and confirmed by their conversion to their cyclized successors muscaflayin and betalamic acid.

TL;DR: The water extracts of edible wild mushrooms showed potent antioxidant activities compared to BHA to a certain extent and all the mushrooms have better ABTS*+ inhibition activity than BHA (1 mM); the beta-CB inhibition activity of BHA was significantly higher than those of edibleWild mushrooms.
Abstract: The present study aims to assess the antioxidant activities (AOA) and total phenolic content (TPC) of water extracts of selected edible wild mushrooms: Pleurotus porrigens, Schizophyllum commune, Hygrocybe conica, and Lentinus ciliatus. The AOA were evaluated against DPPH radical and ABTS radical cation scavenging ability, ferric-reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) and beta-carotene-linoleate bleaching (beta-CB) assays, and the Folin-Ciocalteu method for TPC. BHA was used as reference. P. porrigens showed significantly higher (p L. ciliatus = Pleurotus ostreatus (cultivated) > H. conica = Sch. commune. Positive correlation was observed between the AOA and TPC. When compared to BHA (2 mM), P. porrigens showed significantly higher (p < 0.05) DPPH* scavenging ability and reducing power, while Sch. commune showed comparable DPPH* scavenging ability and ABTS*+ inhibition activity. All the mushrooms have better ABTS*+ inhibition activity than BHA (1 mM). The beta-CB inhibition activity of BHA was significantly higher than those of edible wild mushrooms. The water extracts of edible wild mushrooms showed potent antioxidant activities compared to BHA to a certain extent.
