Levan produced from Microbacterium laevaniformans KCTC 9732 (M-levan) was isolated and treated with an inulinase to modify its branching structure. The chemical structures of levans were characterized, and the modified levans were applied on animal tumor cells to evaluate their antitumor activity. The GC-MS analysis indicated that beta-(2,1)-linked branches… CONTINUE READING
