Oral administration of SSG, a beta-glucan obtained from Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, affects the function of Peyer's patch cells.

The effect of orally administered SSG, a beta-1,3-glucan obtained from the culture filtrate of a fungus, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum IFO 9395, on the function of Peyer's patch (PP) cells was investigated in comparison with that on spleen cells in mice. Oral administration of SSG enhanced the proliferative response of PP cells to a T-cell mitogen, concanavalin A ( Con A), and a B-cell mitogen, lipopolysaccharide (LPS), although the response of spleen cells was not affected. Peyer's patch cells taken from mice which had received oral administration of SSG two days before, showed enhanced plaque-forming cell (PFC) response to sheep red blood cells (SRBC) after antigen (SRBC) stimulation for 5 days in vitro. These results suggest that oral administration of SSG can modulate the mucosal immune response.[1]
