Related to laminarin: algin

lam·i·nar·in

(lam-i-nār'in),
An algal polysaccharide, made up chiefly of β-d-glucose residues, obtained from Laminaria species (family Laminariaceae); variable proportions of the glucose chains contain at the potential reducing end a molecule of mannitol that can be sulfated.

laminarin

(lăm′ə-nâr′ĭn)
n.
A polymer of glucose that is the main form of food storage in brown algae.

laminarin

(lăm″ĭ-nā′rĭn)
A polysaccharide obtained from Laminaria species of seaweed. It consists principally of glucose residues.
