The aim of the present study is to evaluate the cytotoxicity and glucose uptake activity of methanolic extract of pleurotus eous mushroom using L6 cell lines. An MTT assay is a colorimetric assay based on assessing the cell metabolic activityThe results showed that the extracts did not confer any cytotoxicity. The effects were observed in treated cells up to 6.25 mg/ml extract as measured with MTT. Also the mushroom extracts shows better glucose uptake potential. The results were compared with Insulin a standard antidiabetic drug. Insulin enhance the glucose uptake upto 97.8%. The L6 cell lines enhance the glucose uptake by 57.4% at 65µg concentration.
