A purified sulfated galactan
was isolated from Botryocladia occidentalis, with anticoagulant activity similar to that of heparin (FARIAS et al.
Chemical analysis indicated that early losses in arabinan and galactan
were associated with early strength loss.
These anticoagulant SP include fucoidans, sulfated galactans
, ulvans and rhamnose (ASSREUY et al.
For both fungi, significant levels (greater than 5%) of arabinan and galactan
were degraded at lower levels of MOR loss compared with xylan and mannan, where 5 percent loss occurred after approximately 40 percent MOR loss, and glucan, where 5 percent loss occurred after MOR loss above 75 percent.
Treatment with sulphated galactan
inhibits macrophage chemotaxis and reduces intraplaque macrophage content in atherosclerotic mice.
muscoides reveals structure of galactan
similar to that of the extract.
This study demonstrated that the immunomodulatory effect of AGAF belongs to [beta]-(1 [right arrow] 3, 1 [right arrow] 6) galactan
backbone possessed the potential as inducer of DC maturation.
A carrageenan from Gymnogongrus griffithsiae and a galactan
from Cryptonemia crenulata were also reported to inhibit multiplication of DENV2 in Vero cells (152).
The low frequency of hyperhydricity on a medium with agar might be due to a sulphated galactan
in agar (Nairn et al.
Arabinogalactans are polymers with a galactan
backbone and arabinan side chains (Choct, 1997).
H] regions of antibodies against the carbohydrate antigens galactan
and levan are also encoded by [V.
Contrary to OAAO, acid extraction condition reduce the length of rhamnogalacturonan I side chains by depolymerising arabinan and galactan
