The present work investigated the antioxidative, anti-inflammatory and pulmonary protective effects of enzymatic- and acid- hydrolysed mycelia polysaccharides (En-MPS and Ac-MPS) from Oudemansiella radicata on LPS-induced acute lung injury (ALI) mice. The results demonstrated that both En-MPS and Ac-MPS showed potential pulmonary protective effects by decreasing serum levels of hs-CRP and C3, increasing pulmonary enzyme values of SOD, GSH-Px, CAT and the level of T-AOC; reducing the activity of MPO; and down-regulating the contents of MDA and LPO. In addition, the levels of TNF-ɑ, IL-1β, and IL-6 in BALF of mice treated with En-MPS at a dosage of 400 mg/kg/d were significantly lower than those in the ALI mice. The in vitro antioxidant effects also showed that the En-MPS was more effective than Ac-MPS. Furthermore, the physical properties of polysaccharides were also investigated by GC, HPGPC, FT-IR and NMR. These results indicated that both En-MPS and Ac-MPS possessed potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, which could be used as an ingestible drug in preventing lung injury.
