Pterospartum tridentatum (L.) Willk. decoctions of dried inflorescences are used in Portugal due to their claimed beneficial properties for various health disorders. To disclose the potential contribution of its polysaccharides to health benefits, in this work, hot water extracts from P. tridentatum inflorescences were prepared and fractionated by ethanol precipitation and anion exchange chromatography. The fraction rich in acetylated galactomannans evidenced an increase in nitric oxide (NO… Expand
Macrophage immunomodulatory activity of the polysaccharide isolated from Collybia radicata mushroom.
TLDR
The results showed that the 14942Da polysaccharide has a potent immunomodulatory activity by stimulating macrophages and can be considered as a novel potential immunopotentiator in medical and food industries. Expand
In vitro immunomodulatory activity of water-soluble glucans from fresh and dried Longan (Dimocarpus longan Lour.).
TLDR
These glucans from fresh and dried longan pulp have immunomodulatory activity, shown by in vitro phagocytosis, NO, TNF-α, and IL-6 macrophages production assays to inhibit the inflammatory response induced by LPS. Expand
Activation of RAW264.7 macrophages by an acidic polysaccharide derived from Citrus grandis 'Tomentosa'.
TLDR
Citrus grandis 'Tomentosa' could be a promising candidate as a potent immunomodulator for the application in future pharmaceutical development, it is declared. Expand
Characterization of a polysaccharide HP-02 from Honeysuckle flowers and its immunoregulatory and anti-Aeromonas hydrophila effects in Cyprinus carpio L.
TLDR
HP-02 had immunomodulatory effects on common carp both in vitro and in vivo, and HP-02 can be applied as a common carp feed supplement to enhance fish immunity and disease resistance against A. hydrophila. Expand
Sarcocornia perennis pectic polysaccharides orally administered to mice: Holistic histological evaluation of xenobiotic protection.
TLDR
These pectic polysaccharides were shown to protect the immune and reproductive systems against toxic chemicals inducers of oxidation reactions, and purification is a fundamental step, since the low molecular weight compounds of the edible parts may contribute to lesions in reproductive organs. Expand
Flavonoid Profile of the Genista tridentata L., a Species Used Traditionally to Treat Inflammatory Processes
TLDR
The results support the anti-inflammatory properties attributed to G. tridentate preparations, and the roots of the shrub, plant part not used, is an unexplored source of compounds with pharmacological and nutraceutical value. Expand
Structural polymeric features that contribute to in vitro immunostimulatory activity of instant coffee.
TLDR
Results show the relevance of single arabinose residues, present at the non-reducing end of polymeric compounds, to the coffee stimulatory activity in cells mediating innate and acquired immunity. Expand
The Effects of Oral Rehmannia glutinosa Polysaccharide Administration on Immune Responses, Antioxidant Activity and Resistance Against Aeromonas hydrophila in the Common Carp, Cyprinus carpio L
TLDR
In vivo experimental results suggested that RGP-1 could enhance the non-specific immunity, antioxidant activity and anti-A. Expand
Effects of an exopolysaccharide from Lactococcus lactis Z-2 on innate immune response, antioxidant activity, and disease resistance against Aeromonas hydrophila in Cyprinus carpio L.
TLDR
It is indicated that EPS-2 has immunomodulatory and antioxidant effects on common carp, both in vitro and/or in vivo, and can be applied as a common carp feed supplement to enhance fish immunity and disease resistance against A. hydrophila. Expand
