Polysaccharides of Saponin-Bearing Plants. XIV. Structural Study of Glucoarabinogalactan from Acanthophyllum pungens Roots


The structure of the polysaccharide glucoarabinogalactan, which is a branched polysaccharide, was established by chemical and spectral methods. Its main chain consists of α-1→6-bound galactopyranose units. Galactopyranose atoms C-2 and C-3 act as branching points. The side chains contain galactopyranose, glucopyranose, and chains of β-(1→3)-bound… (More)
