Volvariella volvacea : Straw mushroom

Molecular structure of
Straw mushroom:VVL

Volvariella volvacea

Lecster ID:654 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Straw mushroom
Species:Volvariella volvacea
Common Nomenclature:VVL
Index Nomenclature:LECf.Vol.Vol.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:The lectin has a moderate inhibitory effect on the growth of tumor cells.
Biological Activity:The immunomodulatory activity of VVL was demonstrated by its potent stimulatory activity toward murine splenic lymphocytes. VVL was also found to markedly enhance the transcriptional expression of interleukin-2 and interferon-gamma by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. See:Biochem Biophys Res Commun 1998 Jun 9;247(1):106-11
Source Tissue:
Inhibitors:Its hemagglutinating activity was inhibited by thyroglobulin but not by simple carbohydrate s such as monomeric or dimeric sugars.
References:J Biochem (Tokyo) 1984 Jul;96(1):35-40
