Title: Cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitory and antioxidant compounds from the truffle Elaphomyces granulatus

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The ethanol extract of fruiting bodies of Elaphomyces granulatus, a truffle-like fungus, was evaluated for cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzyme inhibitory and antioxidant activities. Inhibition of COX-2 activity was evaluated in mouse macrophages (RAW 264.7). The extract of E. granulatus caused a 68% inhibition of COX-2 activity at 50 ug/mL. Bioassay-guided investigation led to the isolation and identification of two active compounds, syringaldehyde and syringic acid.

Keywords: Elaphomyces granulatus, Ascomycota, hypogeous, truffle, COX-2, RAW 264.7 cells, antiinflammatory, antioxidants, DCFH oxidation, HL-60 cells
