Abstract

The quantitative determination and TLC identification of total nucleosides in sporophore of Ganoderma lucidum (Leyss. ex Fr.) Karst.

Abstract

Total nucleosides in the sporophore of Ganoderma lucidum (Leyss. ex Fr.) Karst from different localities was determined by UV spectrophotometry. The contents of total nucleosides in sporophores from Guangxi, China, and Vietnam were 0.33 and 0.34%, respectively. Higher contents (0.40-0.46%) occurred in sporophores from Taiwan, and Jiangsu and Guangdong (China) and lower contents (0.16-0.21%) from Yunnan (China). TLC identification of uracil, adenine, adenosine and uridine in the sporophore of G. lucidum was performed. This method was simple, reliable and specific.
