Based on our own and current literature data, we analyzed the prebiotic properties of polysaccharides and extracts of seaweeds. The role of prebiotics, particularly polysaccharides, in the normalization of intestinal microflora is discussed; consideration is also given to the possibility of seaweed polysaccharide fermentation by colonic microflora and(More)
An α-galactosidase capable of converting B red blood cells into the universal blood type cells at the neutral pH was produced by a novel obligate marine bacterium strain KMM 701 (VKM B-2135 D). The organism is heterotrophic, aerobic, and halophilic and requires Na+ ions and temperature up to 34°C for its growth. The strain has a unique combination of(More)
The medical lead, so-called Cumaside, was created on the basis of triterpene oligoglycosides from the Far-Eastern edible sea cucumber (holothurian) Cucumaria japonica and its immunomodulatory properties were studied. The haemolytic activity of Cumaside was significantly reduced in comparison with original glycosides due to the glycoside-cholesterol complex(More)
UNLABELLED The search for the substances sensitizing cancer cells to apoptosis induction by chemotherapeutic agents is a task of high importance in the modern strategy of anticancer therapy. THE AIM of the study was to investigate the apoptogenic and apoptosis-modulating activities of fucoidan (sulfated polysaccharide) isolated from far-eastern brown(More)
The modern theories on the anti-inflammatory effects of sulphated polysaccharides extracted from marine algae have been analyzed. It has been found that sulphated polysaccharides may play a double role in the immune response, as either an initiator or inhibitor of the inflammation process. State-of-the-art data and original results show that sulphated(More)
Biopolymers of sea hydrobionts such as mytilan, alpha-1,4;1,6-D-glycan isolated from the muntle of the mussel Crenomytilus grayanus; translam, beta-1,3;1,6-D-glucan isolated from the seaweed Laminaria cichorioides; fucoidan, a sulfated polysccharide isolated from the algae Fucus evanescens; zosterin, a pectin isolated from sea grass of the family(More)
The radioprotective activity has been studied of a new immunomodulatory lead material, Cumaside, which is a complex of monosulfated triterpene glycosides from the edible sea cucumber Cucumaria japonica and cholesterol. Female CD-1 strain mice administered with prophylactic doses of Cumaside were irradiated using a Gamma-therapeutic device with a 60Co source(More)
The review summarizes results of studies of effects of sulfated polysaccharides from seaweed on herpesviruses and the course of herpesvirus infections. Importance of this problem is determined by the prevalence of herpesviruses that can persist in the human body and demonstrate a high degree of immune mimicry and resistance to antiviral agents. A wide range(More)
Antioxidants of natural origin are considered as possible agents for prevention and treatment of liver diseases. Marine algae and in particular their extracts and obtained from them sulfated polysaccharides are significant sources of natural antioxidants. The recent data on the effect of the extracts and sulfated polysaccharides of seaweed on the functional(More)
A possibility of adhesion inhibition of Corynebacterium diphtheriae to human buccal epithelium by glycoside hydrolases of marine hydrobiontes was investigated using alpha-galactosidase from marine bacterium Pseudoalteromonas sp. KMM 701, total enzyme preparation and beta-1,3-glucanase from marine fungi Chaetomium, total enzyme preparation and(More)
