The main chemical and physical features of the Acacia senegal exudate gum and its molecular fractions isolated by chromatographies were determined using a wide variety of methods. Three main molecular fractions were isolated after hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC) and biochemical analyses confirmed the presence of an arabinogalactan-peptide (FI), an arabinogalactan-protein (FII), and a glycoprotein (FIII) fraction as described commonly in the literature. Further purification of FIII… CONTINUE READING
