Polysaccharides, galactans, obtained from edible red seaweed Hypnea musciformis were characterized by molecular weight and infrared spectroscopy analysis and were evaluated for antioxidant activity in vitro and for their effects on cell viability. The main components were galactose and sulfate presenting low protein contamination. These sulfated galactans(More)
Polysaccharides from algae are also proper candidates with therapeutic properties and immunomodulatory and antitumor effects. The brown seaweed Lobophora variegata synthesizes different groups of anionic polysaccharides with several biological properties. Sulfated polysaccharides were obtained by delipidation of seaweed, proteolysis, and fractionation with(More)
