Button Mushroom and colon cancer
Bowel cancer also known as colorectal cancer, is defined as a condition of the abnormal proliferation of cells in the colon, rectum, or vermiform appendix. It is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in developed countries, including US and Canada.
A. bisporus showed to inhibit colon cancer cell line through positively increased GPx-1 and GPx-2 gene expression and GPx-1 enzyme activity in rat colon, due to the presented selenium(1). the Methodist Research Institute, Indianapolis study showed a positive effect of A. bisporus in inhibition of colon cancer (HT-29, HCT-116) cells, through cell cycle arrest at G0/G1 phase(2) and reversibly inhibits cell proliferation occurred within 30 min of the lectin being bound to the cell surface(3).
