The following pectins were sulfated: bergenan BC (the pectin of Bergenia crassifolia L), lemnan LM (the pectin of Lemna minor L), and galacturonan as a backbone of pectins. Pyridine monomethyl sulfate, pyridine sulfotrioxide, and chlorosulfonic acid were used as reagents for sulfation. Chlorosulfonic acid proved to be the optimal reagent for sulfation of(More)
Lipopolysaccharides from Yersinia enterocolitica serovars O:1,2a,3, O:2a,2b,3 and O:3 have been isolated and characterized. 6-Deoxy-L-altrose residues were shown to be the main constituents of lipopolysaccharides isolated in addition to residues of L-rhamnose, D-glucose, D-galactose, 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-glucose, 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-galactose,(More)
The pectic polysaccharide named rauvolfian RS was obtained from the dried callus of Rauvolfia serpentina L. by extraction with 0.7% aqueous ammonium oxalate. Crude rauvolfian RS was purified using membrane ultrafiltration to yield the purified rauvolfian RSP in addition to glucan as admixture from the callus, with molecular weights 300 and 100-300 kD,(More)
A pectic polysaccharide named comaruman (CP) was extracted from the aerial part of Comarum palustre with 0.7% aqueous ammonium oxalate and subsequent precipitation with ethanol. Oral administration of comaruman (5-100 mg/kg) was found to reduce a paw edema observed 24 h after injection of 2% formalin in mice. A fraction of comaruman (CP-H9) exhibited a(More)
Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) fractions were isolated from three species of blue-green algae of the genus Phormidium, namely, P. africanum, P. laminosum, and P. uncinatum, by using a phenol-water procedure followed by exhaustive extraction with ammonium oxalate. The materials obtained were shown to be closely related biochemically. Nearly 60% of the LPS(More)
Pectin with [alpha]D(20) +192 degrees (c 0.1; water), named comaruman, was isolated from marsh cinquefoil Comarum palustre L., which is widespread in the European North. The sugar chain of comaruman contains residues of D-galacturonic acid (64%), D-galactose (13%), L-rhamnose (12%), L-arabinose (6%), and trace amounts of xylose and glucose. Partial acid(More)
Galacturonan, the main constituent of the backbone (core) of the comaruman macromolecule, a pectin from the marsh cinquefoil Comarum palustre L., was obtained on partial acid hydrolysis of the pectin. Using atomic force microscopy and methylation analysis of the galacturonan, the backbone of the comaruman macromolecule was shown to contain branches as side(More)
The effect of a 82 MDa plasmid or its 25 MDa DNA fragment and growth temperature on the qualitative and the quantitative fatty acid and phospholipid composition of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis cells has been examined. In the cold, plasmid-containing and plasmid-free strains failed to differ appreciably in the contents of phospholipid and fatty acid. The(More)
