Structural heterogeneity among unique sulfated L-galactans from different species of ascidians (tunicates).

Abstract

The sulfated polysaccharides that occur in the tunic of ascidians differ markedly in molecular weight and chemical composition. A high molecular weight fraction (F-1), which has a high galactose content and a strong negative optical rotation, is present in all species. Several structural differences were observed among the F-1 fractions obtained from three… (More)
