Antioxidant and Radical Scavenging Activity of Nine Edible Mushrooms Extract

L. Ramkumar, T. Ramanathan, P. Thirunavukkarasu and N. Arivuselvan

Abstract:
This study revealed that antioxidant properties, 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical scavenging activity and reducing power were observed in different mushroom species namely Agaricus bisporus, Pleurotus sajor-caju, Pleurotus euos, Hybsizus ulmarius, Pleurotus florida, Volveriela volvaciea, Pleurotus platypus, Pleurotus djamor and Calocybe indica. Methonolic extract of P. euos was recorded maximum levels of DPPH free radical scavenging (6 mg mL-1), reducing power (6 mg mL-1) and enzymatic antioxidants viz., catalase, superoxide dismutase and peroxidise, 68.7±1.1, 0.39±0.01, 42.21±0.06, 37.12±0.04 and 7.21±0.05, respectively. The maximum amount of enzymatic antioxidants were recorded viz., CAT, SOD and POX; 42.21±0.06, 37.12±0.04 and 7.21±0.05 μmol, respectively.
