Glycogen acts as energy and carbon reserves in animal cells and in microorganisms. Although anti-tumor activity has recently been reported for shellfish glycogen and enzymatically synthesized glycogen, the activity of glycogen has not yet been fully clarified. We enzymatically prepared various sizes of glycogens with controlled structures to investigate the relationship between the structure and immunostimulating activity of glycogen. The results revealed that glycogens with a weight-average… CONTINUE READING
