A water-soluble polysaccharide, designated as KOMAP, was isolated and purified from the alkaline extract of king oyster mushroom, which was composed of glucose (Glc), mannose (Man) and arabinose (Ara) in a molar ratio of 6.2:2.1:2.0. It had an average molecular weight of 2.1×10(4)Da. GC-MS analysis revealed that KOMAP was a linear structure of the polymer… CONTINUE READING
