Isolation of beta-linkage-containing side chain oligosaccharides from the mannan of Candida guilliermondii IFO 10279 strain has been conducted by acetolysis under mild conditions. A structural study of these oligosaccharides by one- and two-dimensional NMR and methylation analyses indicated the presence of extended oligosaccharide side chains with two consecutive beta-1,2-linked mannose units at the nonreducing terminal of alpha-linked oligosaccharides. The linkage sequence present in this… CONTINUE READING
