ABSTRACT


Mushrooms are very important sources of drugs for modern medicine. Phyotherapeutic efficiency of terpenes from mushrooms has been proved. Lanostane type triterpenoids having potentials for cancer disease treatments are rich source of mushrooms. Therefore, the demand of isolation of bioactive compounds from the mushroom species has been increasing due to their medicinal importance. The paper reviewed isolation and biological activities such as antibacterial, anticancer, anticandidal, anticholinesterase, anti-compliment, antileishmanial, anti-inflammatory, anti-invasive, antimalarial, antioxidant, antitubercular, antitumor, antiviral, and cytotoxic activities of terpenoids from mushroom origin in the last two decades.
