Effects of supplementing dietary laminarin
and fucoidan on intestinal morphology and the immune gene expression in the weaned pig.
JoJ48C11 and JoJ48F1 showed a slight interaction with laminarin
of Laminaria digitata.
In the experiments employing [beta]-glucanolytic enzymes (a commercial preparation from Lallzyme BETA[R], Lallemand Inc., Canada; 4 mL (30 Units assayed against laminarin
) , and a [beta]-(1 [right arrow] 3)-glucanase preparation from Trichoderma harzianum Rifai) , the enzyme was added to the 6-day-old yeast strain culture media.
phaseolina (M), glucose, S-glucan, casein, laminarin
or colloidal chitin as a carbon source.
Effect of laminarin
on the expression of GRP78 and GRP94 in rat after unilateral ureteral obstruction.
Previous studies have shown that many marine algal polysaccharides, including laminarin
13, exopolysaccharide of Porphyridium cruentum 18, Spirulina polysaccharides 22, and alginic sodium diester 25, play a role in lowering blood sugar and treating DM complications, such as hyperlipidemia [10-13].
virescens antimicrobial peptides and other immune system components by lipopolysacharides and by laminarin
(Chung & Ourth 2000).
The enzyme activity was assayed by measuring the rate of reducing sugar production with laminarin
(Sigma-Aldrich, Shanghai, China) as the substrate.
Optical density was converted into mg of reducing sugar using a standard curve prepared with glucose and laminarin
Seaweed also contains fucoidan, laminarin
Hemagglutination activity of lectins was poorly inhibited by the presence of arabinose-BSA, galactan, galactose, N-acetylglucosamine, laminarin
, and mannan.
A series of structure-activity relationship studies compared the activity of three soluble beta glucans (scleroglucan, a fungal derived glucan; Imprime PGG, a yeast-derived glucan from Biothera; and laminarin
, an algae-derived glucan) for both binding and immune activation studies.
