Anticholinesterase, Antimicrobial and Antioxidant Activities of Wild Mushroom Suillus bellinii (Inzenga) Kuntze




Anticholinesterase, antimicrobial, antioxidant, Suillus bellinii, wild mushroom


Mushrooms are invariable components of natural ecosystems. Today, they are used by humans for different purposes. In this study, some biological activities of wild mushroom Suillus bellinii (Inzenga) Kuntze were determined. In this regard, ethanol and methanol extracts of the mushroom were obtained using Soxhlet apparatus. Anticholinesterase activity was determined by determining acetyl and butyrylcholinesterase activities. Antimicrobial activity was determined by agar dilution method using standard bacterial and fungal strains. Total antioxidant level (TAS), total oxidant level (TOS) and oxidative stress index (OSI) of the mushroom were determined using Rel Assay kits According to the results obtained, it was observed that methanol extract of mushroom had higher acetyl and butyrylcholinesterase activity than ethanol extract. The mushroom extracts were found to be effective against microorganisms at concentrations between 100-400 µg/Ml. In addition, It was determined that the methanol extract of the mushroom had higher TAS and TOS values than the ethanol extract. OSI value was found to be higher in ethanol extract. In conclusion, it was determined that Suillus bellinii has antioxidant, antimicrobial and anticholinesterase activities and can be used as natural material in this concept.
