Outmodel is a medicinal sponge whose glycoproteins have immunomodulatory and anticancer effects ( Sekhon2016esi ). In this indication, the outcomer is very popular especially in Japan. Out-of-the-box variety grows quite abundantly with us, but because of the solid consistency it is inedible and must be powdered or prepared as an extract before use.
Proteoglycan (PSK) is effective against several types of cancer ( Jimenezmedina2008ipi , Fisher2002aem , Eliza2012eyz ), including breast cancer ( Standish2008tvm ), colorectal carcinoma ( Kanoh1994eae , Kobayashi1995aep ) and leukemia ( Wan2010pdc ).
Glycoprotein content of the cultured outflow can be analyzed by chromatographic and other biochemical methods ( Rau2009psa ), specific anticancer activity, but these methods are not measured. When using a free-flowing outflow, care must be taken to ensure the purity of the source, because the natural fungi have a great ability to concentrate heavy metals ( Dogan2006cms ).
The outmoded variety is able to decompose a range of waste materials of wood (paper) and synthetic origin. Its fungus is used to decompose wood waste, straw, lignin, paper extracts, WWTP sludge, phenol, phenanthrene, triterpenoids, synthetic dyes, pharmaceuticals, mycotoxins, etc. ( Martinkova2016bpc ).
