ABSTRACT

Two fungal steroids, namely, ergosterol peroxide (EP) and (9,11-dehydroergosterol peroxide (9(11)-DHEP), were isolated and identified from the mycelia of Ling Zhi or Reishi medicinal mushroom, Ganoderma lucidum, grown under submerged culture. Both EP and 9(11)-DHEP exhibited inhibitory effects on human breast adenocarcinoma MCF-7 cells. The nontumorigenic human breast MCF-10-2A cells were less susceptible to these two compounds. Flow cytometric analyses suggested that these two fungal steroids inhibited the growth of MCF-7 cells by inducing cell apoptosis.
