The name shiitake originates from its japanese name, shiitake. Shii
is the japanese name of the tree castanopsis cuspidata that provides the dead logs on which it is typically cultivated,
and take means "mushroom". Other common names by which the mushroom is known in english include "chinese black
mushroom", "black forest mushroom", "black mushroom", "golden oak
mushroom", or "oakwood mushroom".
The species was formerly known as lentinus edodes and agaricus
edodes. The latter name was first applied by the english botanist miles joseph berkeley in 1878.
Basic research has evaluated whether consumption of shiitake mushrooms may affect
the immune system, possess antibacterial properties, reduce platelet aggregation, or possess antiviral properties, possibly through proteinase inhibitors.
Active hexose correlated compound (ahcc) is an α-glucan-rich compound isolated from shiitake. In
japan, ahcc is the second most popular complementary and alternative medicine used by cancer patients and is metabolized via the cyp450 2d6 pathway.
Other basic research tested if ahcc may increase the body's
resistance to pathogens as shown in experiments with the influenza virus, west nile virus, or bacterial infection. animal research and limited clinical trials indicate that ahcc may
enhance immune function. other basic research has shown that ahcc may affect hepatocellular carcinoma and prostate cancer.
Rarely, consumption of raw or slightly cooked shiitake mushrooms
may evoke signs of allergy, including "an erythematous, micro-papular, streaky, extremely pruriginous rash" that occurs all over the body including face and scalp, appearing
about 48 hours after consumption and disappearing after several
days. This effect, presumably caused by the polysaccharide lentinan, is known in asia, but is unfamiliar to europeans. although it may occur in roughly 2% of the population, thorough
cooking may eliminate allergenicity.
