Proteomic analysis of differently cultured endemic medicinal mushroom Antrodia cinnamomea T.T. Chang et W.N. Chou from Taiwan.
Antrodia cinnamomea is peculiar to Taiwan. It only grows on one host and is highly valued as an important component of several traditional Chinese medicines. In this study, the different protein expression profiles of artificially cultivated vegetative mycelium and wild-type basidiomatal fruiting bodies were compared and unique protein spots from wild-type basidiomatal fruiting body were investigated using 2D polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and LC-MS/MS protein identification. Most of the wild-type proteins not seen in the artificially cultivated mycelium were associated to function in metabolism, cell stress, ROS scavenging, and cell growth. Several proteins from wild-type basidiomes, such as catalase, aryl-alcohol dehydrogenase, S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine hydrolase, intradiol dioxygenase, haloacid dyhydrogenase, alpha- and beta-form tubulin, prohibitin, septin, chaperone, and HSP90 ATPase, showed higher expression than those from artificially cultured mycelium at the mRNA level.
