Hello Hojat,
sorry to see that your interesting technical question has not yet received any qualified answers. I must admit that as an inorganic chemist I'm not a proven expert in this discipline. However, I can suggest to you the following useful review article which could provide you with some initial ideas:

This article is accessible as public full text on RG. Thus you can freely download it as pdf file.
Please also have a look at the following interesting link which shows that shiitake mushroom extract and lentinan are indeed beneficial to the skin:

Dear Woo-Sik,
I asked that questions because as suggested low-temperature techniques are well in most cases, there can be some problems with several species and strains.
I faced  problems with regrowth of Agaricus strains, especially homokaryotic after freezing and some others.
Anyway, some mushrooms can form dormnant structures such as arthrospores or sclerotia under certain conditions and can be successfully stored at 4ºC for about a year and even a little bit more in some cases.
