In this study, a novel water soluble polysaccharide (named GFP-4) was extracted from Grifola frondosa at 4C, and its preliminary structure and inhibitory effects on human gastric carcinoma MKN-45 cells through the Fas/FasL death receptor apoptosis pathway were investigated. High-performance gel permeation chromatography (HPGPC), fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), and ion chromatography (IC) results showed that GFP-4 was a 1.09 × 10Da neutral hetero polysaccharide with pyranose rings, andα- and β-type glycosidic linkages that contained galactose, glucose, and mannose at a molar ratio of 1.00:3.45:1.19. MTT results indicated that GFP-4 significantly inhibited the proliferation of MKN-45 cells in a concentration-dependent manner. The H&E staining and Hoechst 33342/PI double staining results showed that GFP-4-treated MKN-45 cells were subjected to underwent typical apoptotic morphologic changes such as nuclear pyknosis, chromatin condensation, and an increase of membrane permeability. Annexin V-FITC/PI double staining, cell cycle analysis, and western blot results revealed the GFP-4 induced MKN-45 cells apoptosis through the Fas/FasL-mediated death receptor pathway with cells arrested at the G0/G1 phase. These data indicate that GFP-4 is a promising candidate for treating gastric cancer and provide a theoretical basis for the future development and utilization of G. frondosa clinically.
