Objective : This experimental study was performed to investigate the contents of glucan from mycellium and its activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus(MRSA). Methods : A gel permeation chromatography method was develped for the determination and isolation of glucan in mycellium. Their structures were elucidated using ^1H-NMR$, ^{13}C-NMR$. Also, The antibacterial activity of the glucan against MRSA was estimathed by determining the minimum inhibitory concentration(MIC). Results : The contents of glucan in mycellium was $766{\pm}0.19$ mg/g. Glucan exhibited activity against MRSA, with an MIC values of 4 to 9 mg/mL. Conclusions : These findings suggested that glucan might be useful in controlling MRSA infections.
