Structural Investigation of Glucan Complexes Isolated from Phellinus and Inonotus Wood Fungi
AbstraktThe structure of glucan complexes isolated from fruit bodies of medicinal white-rot fungi Phellinus and Inonotus spp was investigated. Water-soluble fractions contained ?- and ?-glucans, glucose and other sugars (mannose, galactose, xylose and arabinose). FTIR spectra confirmed the presence of ?- and ?-polysaccharides (mostly glucans), uronic acids, some proteins and aromatic compounds. The water-soluble fractions of the Inonotus fruit bodies were structurally different from those of Phellinus sp. Water-soluble polysaccharides constituted only a minor part of the fruit bodies, while a chitin - glucan complex together with aromatic polymers made the basis of insoluble cell-wall residues. Complex structure of the water-soluble fractions was also investigated by TGA and DSC.
