Results Content of total sugars,sulfate,uronic acid and aminosugars of polysaccharides from ten kinds of sea cucumbers fluctuated within 40.33 %～62.11 %,19.54 %～29.95 %,9.85 %～13.38 % and 4.92 %～10.18 %,respectively.
STRUCTURAL STUDIES OF AN IMMUNOENHANCING POLYSACCHARIDE ISOLATED FROM MATURE PODS (FRUITS) OF MORINGA OLEIFERA
An immunoenhancing polysaccharide isolated from the hot aqueous extract of mature pods of Moringa oleifera was found to contain only D-glucose as a monosaccharide constituent.
On the basis of total acid hydrolysis, methylation analysis, periodate oxidation and NMR studies (1H and 13C) the structure of the repeating unit of the polysaccharide was assigned and indicated only α-(1→4) linked Glucan.
STRUCTURAL CHARACTERISATION OF AN IMMUNOMODULATING POLYSACCHARIDE ISOLATED FROM AQUEOUS EXTRACT OF PLEUROTUS FLORIDA FRUIT-BODIE
Separation, purification and structure elucidation of a polysaccharide from root of Cudrania tricuspidata
Evaluation of the antioxidant effects of polysaccharides extracted from Lycium barbarum
Polysaccharides are the most important functional constituent in Lycium barbarum fruits.
In the present study, the antioxidant activity of polysaccharides extracted from Lycium barbarum fruits growing in Xin Jiang, a northwest province of China, was evaluated.
The polysaccharides showed considerable inhibitory activity in the β-carotene-linoleate model system in a concentration-dependent manner.
The multiple antioxidant activity of the polysaccharides was evidenced by significant reducing power, superoxide scavenging ability, inhibition of mice erythrocyte hemolysis mediated by peroxyl free radicals, and also ferrous ion chelating potency.
