Product Name:Ergothioneine

Product Code:YNR-EGT

CAS No.:497-30-3

INCI Name:Ergothioneine

Ergothioneine(EGT) is an important active substance in human boday.Ergothioneine is obtained by multi fermentation of Hericium Erinaceum & Tricholoma Matsutake.Multi fermentation can increase the yield of L-Ergothioneine,which is a sulfur-containing derivative of the amino acid histidine,a unique stable antioxidant and cytoprotective agent,existing in the human body.Ergothioneine can be transferred inside mitochondria by the transporter OCTN-1 in skin keratinocytes and fibroblasts,thus playing the anti-oxidation and protection functions there.

EGT is accumulated into different cellular compartments via its specific transporter OCTN-1,abundantly expressed in mitochondrial DNA is especially vulnerable to stress because unlike nuclear DNA,there are no histones to protect mitochondrial DNA.Reactive oxygen species,like superoxides O2- generated in the mitochondria by respiration,are directly scavenged by EGT.EGT presents in the cytoplasm also scavenges a variety of ROS and reactive nitrogen species.EGT absorbs UV radiation and prevents DNA breaks and mutations.Ergothioneine-5
