Abstract :

Xanthine oxidase (EC is conversion of hypoxanthine and xanthine into uric acid in body and causes gout. Xanthine oxidase inhibitor is typically used in the treatment of gout and nephropathy, etc. Some XOD inhibitors from plants were known, however, there are some reports on XOD inhibitor from microbes including mushrooms. At first, we investigated activity of XOD among several edible mushrooms. Pleurotus ostreatus produces the highest level of anti-gout xanthine oxidase (XOD) inhibition; therefore, was selected P. ostreatus among several edible mushrooms. Optimal extraction conditions of the XOD inhibitor from P. ostreatus were investigated. The efficient conditions of XOD inhibitor extraction from P. ostreatus fruiting body with distilled water were at 40 �?°Ð¡ for 48 hours.
