Antioxidant activity of Agaricus sp. mushrooms by chemical, biochemical and electrochemical assays

Abstract The antioxidant activity of fiveĀ AgaricusĀ sp. mushrooms was screened through chemical, biochemical and electrochemical techniques. The chemical assays allowed an evaluation of their reducing power and radical scavenging activity, while biochemical assays evaluated the lipid peroxidation inhibition capacity, using erythrocytes and brain cells as models; the electrochemical characterization of the mushrooms extracts were performed by […]
