Golden needle mushroom (Flammulina velutipes
[F velutipes]) is one of the main edible mushrooms long recognized for its nutritional value and delicious taste in Asian countries especially China, Japan, Vietnam and Korea.
The genomes of a few other edible or medical mushrooms were also sequenced, for example, Volvariella volvacea , Agaricus bisporus , Flammulina velutipes
, Antrodia cinnamomea , and Wolfiporia cocos .

However, the findings in this study are in contrast with the study of Tinrat  who determined the time-kill kinetic activity of the mushrooms Pleurotus sajor-caju, Hypsizygus tessellatus, Lentinus edodes, Flammulina velutipes
, and Pleurotus eryngii and found them to exhibit bactericidal activity.
Three types of polysaccharides were purified from Flammulina velutipes
with molecular weights of 9,930, 62,290, and 36,310 Da, respectively, with the latter two showing higher antioxidant activities.
