A comparative analysis of the quantitative and qualitative composition of polysaccharides in the red seaweed Tichocarpus crinitus, collected at different sites of Peter the Great Bay in the Japanese Sea (Sivuch’ya Bay, Risovaya Bay and Sobol’ Bay) was carried out. The sites differed in their biotopic and anthropogenic characteristics. The main monosaccharides of the investigated algal polysaccharides were galactose and 3.6-anhydrogalactose, which are structural components of carrageenan The… Expand

Structural Diversity in Galactans From Red Seaweeds and Its Influence on Rheological Properties
It has been shown that structural heterogeneity at some extent is essential for the proper functional performance of red algal galactans, and some red algae produce different amounts of both galactan structures, known as d/l-hybrids. Expand
Comparison of the structures of hybrid κ-/β-carrageenans extracted from Furcellaria lumbricalis and Tichocarpus crinitus
Abstract κ-/β-Carrageenans extracted from Furcellaria lumbricalis and Tichocarpus crinitus are hybrid polysaccharides that have roughly similar κ- and β-carrabiose contents. The distributions ofExpand

Comparative study of carrageenans from reproductive and sterile forms of Tichocarpus crinitus (Gmel.) Rupr (Rhodophyta, Tichocarpaceae)
A comparative study of the structure and properties of the sulfated polysaccharides (carrageenans) isolated from the vegetative and reproductive forms of the red alga Tichocarpus crinitus was performed, finding the gelling poly Saccharide fractions from both forms are κ/β carrageenans. Expand
Structure and properties of carrageenan-like polysaccharide from the red alga Tichocarpus crinitus (Gmel.) Rupr. (Rhodophyta, Tichocarpaceae)
Sulfated polysaccharides occurring in the red algae Tichocarpus crinitus cell wall were fractionated and purified. NMR and FT-IR spectroscopy analyses revealed that the non-gelling fraction containedExpand
Carrageenans from Cystocarpic and Sterile Plants of Chondrus Pinnulatus (Gigartinaceae, Rhodophyta) Collected from the Russian Pacific Coast
Non gelling-carrageenans from both types of ιt C. pinnulatus plants showed high macrophage-phosphatase activity and κ/ι-carageenan from cystocarpic plant possessed a potent anti-coagulant activity, which was extremely strong in a low concentration of 100 μg ml−1. Expand

Changes in Growth Rate, Anatomy and Polysaccharide Content of a Sterile Form of Tichocarpus crinitus (Gmel.) Rupr. (Rhodophyta, Tichocarpaceae) Grown under Differing Photon Irradiances in the Sea of Japan, Russia
Abstract Variations in growth rate, thickness of the internal cortical and medullary cell walls, and carrageenan yield of the red alga Tichocarpus crinitus grown under differing irradiances wereExpand
Spatial and temporal variation of Hypnea musciformis carrageenan (Rhodophyta - Gigartinales) from natural beds in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil
It is suggested that abiotic factors, such as water movement, desiccation stress, low salinity and extreme temperatures, were the main abiotic Factors that influenced the changes in carrageenan of the populations studied. Expand
