ABSTRACT

The anticancer properties, antibiotic activity, and chemical composition of Lenzites betulina ethanol extract (EE) were evaluated. Eight compounds including 5 sterols were isolated from L. betulina, and 7 compounds were isolated from L. betulina for the first time. The EE displayed strong anticancer activity against tumor cell line MDA-MB-231, with a half maximal inhibitory concentration of 51.46 μg/mL, and there was 83.15% inhibition at a concentration of 200 μg/mL (MTT assay). The antimicrobial activity of the EE was evaluated against 6 microorganisms−Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Fusarium graminearum, Gibberella zeae, and Cercosporella albo-maculans−and the EE showed moderate antibiotic activity. These results suggest that L. betulina could be a good anticancer and antibiotic agent.
