Anticlastogenic effect of β-glucan, extracted from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, on cultured cells exposed to ultraviolet radiation
β-glucan is an important polysaccharide due to its medicinal properties of stimulating the immune system and preventing chronic diseases such as cancer. The aim of the present study was to determine the anticlastogenic ...
Effects of the polysaccharide beta-glucan on clastogenicity and teratogenicity caused by acute exposure to cyclophosphamide in mice
(Academic Press Inc. Elsevier B.V., 2009-04-01)
Alterations that could lead to the cancer development may also be related to an adverse development of offspring in experimental animals. Some functional foods, which contain the polysaccharide beta-glucan, have been ...
Protective effect of beta-glucan extracted from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, against DNA damage and cytotoxicity in wild-type (k1) and repair-deficient (xrs5) CHO cells
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-02-01)
A large number of functional foods, including those that contain P-glucan, have been shown to prevent the development of cancer and other chronic diseases. The aim of the present study was to elucidate its mechanism of ...
Evaluation of the antigenotoxicity of polysaccharides and beta-glucans from Agaricus blazei, a model study with the single cell gel electrophoresis/Hep G2 assay
(Academic Press Inc. Elsevier B.V., 2009-11-01)
The mushroom Agaricus blazei (Agaricus brasiliensis) has been drawing attention because of its medicinal properties. Among its isolated compounds, special consideration is given to beta-glucans, which are cell wall ...
beta-glucans in promoting health: Prevention against mutation and cancer
(Elsevier B.V., 2014)
Structural characterization of Botryosphaeran: a (1 -> 3;1 -> 6)-beta-D-glucan produced by the ascomyceteous fungus, Botryosphaeria sp.
(Elsevier B.V., 2003-07-29)
The exopolysaccharide, Botryosphaeran, produced by the ligninolytic, ascomycetcous fungus Botryosphaeria sp., was isolated from the extracellular fluid by precipitation with ethanol, and purified by gel permeation ...
Anti-clastogenic effect of beta-glucan extracted from barley towards chemically induced DNA damage in rodent cells
(Hodder Arnold, Hodder Headline Plc, 2006-06-01)
beta-Glucan (BG) was tested in vitro to determine its potential clastogenic and/or anti-clastogenic activity, and attempts were made to elucidate its possible mechanism of action by using combinations with an inhibitor of ...
Immunomodulatory activities associated with β-glucan derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae
In this study we investigated the effect of β-glucan derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae on fungicidal activity, cytokine production and natural killer activity. Spleen and peritoneal cells from female C57BL/6 mice, ...
