DOI : 10.12991/mpj.2018.41 The aim of the present study was to compare phytochemical composition and biological activities of various extracts of two Basidiomycota truffle collected from Turkey. Analysis of phytochemical compositions in terms of phenolic and fatty acid compositions was determined using HPLC-DAD, GC and GC/MS. Fumaric (10.62, 4.12 μg/g) and protocatechuic acids (2.71, 20.50 μg/g) were identified as the major organic and phenolic acids in Chondrogaster pachysporus and Setchelliogaster tenuipes truffles. Linoleic acid (53.03 %) for C. pachysporus and palmitic acid (38.60 %) for S. tenuipes were found to be the most dominant fatty acids. The extracts were also tested for their antioxidant and anticholinesterase activities. As for antioxidant and anticholinesterase activity results, C. pachysporus truffle showed better activity than S. tenuipes. This work presents the first phytochemical study on C. pachysporus and S. tenuipes truffles and sheds light on their potential usage as the natural source in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. Keywords : Anticholinesterase effect; antioxidant activity; truffle (Basidiomycota); C. pachysporus; S. tenuipes; phenolic compounds
