The structural features of laminarans and galactofucans extracted from the brown seaweed Saccharina longicruris were determined for four harvest periods (M05, A05, N05 and J06). Crude laminarans were purified and crude galactofucans were fractionated using DEAE Sepharose anion exchange chromatography with increasing levels of NaCl (0.5, 1 and 2 M). The results showed differences in terms of their monosaccharide compositions. Purified laminaran contained a high proportion of D-glucose, between… CONTINUE READING
