Phosphorylated derivatives of galactomannan from guar gum (GG) with the degree of substitution (DS) of 0.35-0.52 were synthesized using POCl3/pyridine. FT-IR, (13)C NMR and XPS results revealed that phosphorylation had occurred and C-6 substitution was predominant in phosphorylated guar gum (PGG). PGG showed an increase in Mw and more broad molar mass(More)
In this study, copy number variation (CNV) of NKG2C gene was investigated in 1129 normal, unrelated individuals representing two southern Chinese Han populations (Hunan Han and Guangdong Han), two northern Chinese populations (Inner Mongolia Han and Inner Mongolia Mongol) and one southeastern Chinese Han population (Fujian Han) using polymerase chain(More)
Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element for human beings and many other forms of life. Organic Se from natural foods has higher bioavailability and is safer than inorganic Se species. In the present study, selenium-containing derivatives of Artemisia sphaerocephala polysaccharide with the highest Se content of 1703 μg/g were synthesized using(More)
Sulfated polysaccharides exerted potential biological property which was relative to degree of sulfation (DS), M(w), substitution position and chain conformation. In the present study, commercial guar gum was purified and its sulfated derivates with different DS and M(w) were synthesized. FT-IR and 13C NMR analysis indicated that C-6 substitution was(More)
The conventional extraction methods for polysaccharides were time-consuming, laborious and energy-consuming. Microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) technique was employed for the extraction of Artemisia sphaerocephala polysaccharides (ASP), which is a traditional Chinese food. The extracting parameters were optimized by Box-Behnken design. In microwave heating(More)
We reported here a new synthesis of C-2 and C-3 sulfated guar gum (SRSGG) with low degree of substitution (DSS) of 0.58, employing triphenylchloromethane (TrCl) as a protected precursor. The yield and DSTr (calculated from the weight of triphenylmethanol) of triphenylmethylated GG (GGTr) was 165.6% and 0.71, respectively. In addition, low ratio (1:4) of(More)
In the present study, sulfated derivatives of Artemisia sphaerocephala polysaccharide (SASP) with high degree of substitution (DS) were synthesized by using 4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP)/dimethylcyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) as catalyst in homogeneous conditions. It was found that DMAP/DCC showed marked improvement in DS of sulfated samples. Compared to(More)
The biological activities of sulfated polysaccharides are related to the substitution positions of functional groups. In this study, regioselective sulfation of Artemisia sphaerocephala polysaccharides (SRSASP) was prepared by using triphenylchloromethane (TrCl) as protecting precursor. FT-IR spectra and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) showed that(More)
It was essential to understand the chemical structure of polysaccharides for further research and biochemical or medical application of this natural biopolymer. In the present study, sulfated derivatives of guar gum with high degree of sulfation (DS) were synthesized using 4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP)/dimethylcyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) as catalyst in(More)
Sulfated derivatives of Artemisia sphaerocephala polysaccharide (ASP) with high degree of substitution (DS) were synthesized using 4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP)/dimethylcyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) as catalyst. Size exclusion chromatography combined with multi-angle laser light scattering (SEC-LLS) results showed a decrease in fractal dimension (df) values(More)
