  • Exo-polymer (EP) was produced at 1.2 g l−1 in submerged culture of Auricular auricula-judae. Crude EP (AJ-0) has 70% anti-complementary activity (inhibition of total complementary hemolysis 50%; ITCH50). The activating pathway of the complement system occurred through both the classical and alternative pathways, though the major pathway was the classical one. Fractionation of AJ-0 using Sepharose CL-6B gel chromatography gave three major fractions (AJ-Fr-I, II and III) of which the first was… CONTINUE READING
