RESUMO

Mushrooms have long been used worldwide for culinary and medicinal purposes because of their various nutrients and active constituents. The safety of mushrooms as a culinary ingredient requires validation. Although Mycoleptodonoides aitchisonii has long been used for culinary purposes in East Asia, it has not been authorized by a regulatory agency. In this study we conducted genotoxicity and single-treatment toxicity tests according to the guidelines of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. We performed genotoxicity tests (bacterial reverse mutation study, chromosome aberration test, and micronucleus test), single-treatment toxicity tests, and in vivo mammalian alkaline comet assay of M. aitchisonii water extract (WT). A single treatment with 5000 mg/kg M. aitchisonii WT showed no toxicity. M. aitchisonii WT induced bacterial reverse mutation and chromosome aberration but showed a negative result in the micronucleus test. Thus, an in vivo mammalian alkaline comet assay was performed; however, no genotoxicity was detected. Treatment with <5000 mg/kg M. aitchisonii WT is nontoxic and can be used for culinary purposes.
