An anticancer substance was prepared by ethanol precipitation of the hot water extract of culture mycelia of Conolus versicolor KFCC 30388. After 6 days of fermentation, the mycelia growth reached the peak and reducing sugar consumed almost all. HTCFA method has been employed for three human cancer cell lines, Hep-2(larynx cell), A-427 and Calu-3 (lung cell). Anticancer activities in A-427 and Calu-3 were 8.4 and 9.8% survival rate, respectively. The chemical analysis of the extract from the mycelia showed 42.2% of polysaccharide and 10.5% of protein. The polysaccharide consisted of five kinds of monosaccharides, L-glucose, D-glucose, galactose, mannose and xylose.
