A sulfated cyanobacterial polysaccharide proven as a strong inhibitor of human complement activity in an in vitro assay.


Cyanobacterial exopolysaccharides are a rich source of, so far, widely unexplored polysaccharides. One of these exopolysaccharides is a highly sulfated, linear polysaccharide from Synechocystis aquatilis containing the amino sugar N-acetyl-fucosamine. Some sulfated polysaccharides and glycosaminoglycans are known to be inhibitors of the human complement… (More)
