Abstract: The medicinal mushroom, Auricularia polytricha is commonly known as “black ear mushroom” and is popularly grown in China and is widely distributed from temperate to tropical regions of the world. The mushroom is known to have highly nutritious as well as pharmaceutical properties in it. Keeping view of this an experiment was conducted to exploit the anti-cancerous activities of the mushroom. The concentrations ranging from 6.25, 12.5, 25, 50 and 100 µg/ml showed decreased per cent viability of cervical cancer cells (79.34, 73.69, 66.95, 61.10 and 53.75 % respectively), colon cancer cells (87.24, 73.37, 59.0, 46.86 and 30.74%) and liver cancer cells (98.27, 92.77, 81.79, 74.50 and 53.59 percentage)
