A polysaccharide fraction consisting of d-galactose, sulfate, and pyruvate in a molar proportion of 4:2:1 was isolated from the green seaweed Codium yezoense by water extraction followed by ion-exchange chromatography. To elucidate its structure, modified polysaccharides were prepared by desulfation, depyruvylation, and by total removal of non-carbohydrate substituents. Structures of the native polysaccharide and of the products of its chemical modifications were investigated by methylation… Expand
Chemical structure of the complex pyruvylated and sulfated agaran from the red seaweed Palisada flagellifera (Ceramiales, Rhodophyta).
TLDR
Kinetic studies suggest that in P. flagellifera agaran the cyclizable units are linked to 6-O-methyl-β-D-galactosyl and/or β-D (6-glycosylated) units, and the major subfraction obtained from the cold extract contains structurally complex sulfated, methylated, and pyruvylated agaran. Expand
A preponderantly 4-sulfated, 3-linked galactan from the green alga Codium isthmocladum.
TLDR
The green algae of the genus Codium have recently been demonstrated to be an important source of sulfated galactans from the marine environment and their structure was studied by a combination of chemical analyses and NMR spectroscopy. Expand
Structural characterization and anticoagulant activity of a sulfated polysaccharide from the green alga Codium divaricatum.
TLDR
The investigation demonstrated that CP2-1 was an anticoagulant-active sulfated polysaccharide distinguishing from other sulfatedpolysaccharides from marine green algae. Expand
Structural studies on a novel fucogalactan sulfate extracted from the brown seaweed Laminaria japonica.
TLDR
A low molecular weight fucogalactan, obtained from the brown seaweed Laminaria japonica, was separated into three fractions by DEAE-Sepharose FF column chromatography and showed that the main fraction LF2 consisted of l-fucose, d-galactose and sulfate at a molar ratio 6:1:9. Expand
Isolation of phosphorylated polysaccharides from algae: the immunostimulatory principle of Chlorella pyrenoidosa.
The major immunostimulatory principle in the hot aqueous extract of Chlorella pyrenoidosa has been isolated by a sequence of ethanol precipitation, precipitation with a cationic surfactant (CTAB),Expand
Structural elucidation of an acidic galactan from the eggs of mollusc Pomacea lineata
Abstract A polysaccharide fraction containing acidic galactan (AG) was obtained from eggs of the mollusc Pomacea lineata by precipitation with acetone. Its structure was investigated using aExpand
Further studies on the composition and structure of a fucoidan preparation from the brown alga Saccharina latissima.
TLDR
The polysaccharide composition of a fucoidan preparation isolated from the brown alga Saccharina latissima was reinvestigated and it was shown that even a single algal species may contain, at least in minor amounts, several sulfatedpolysaccharides differing in molecular structure. Expand
Chemical structure and anticoagulant activity of highly pyruvylated sulfated galactans from tropical green seaweeds of the order Bryopsidales.
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that one of the possible mechanisms involved is direct thrombin inhibition, as well as a complex sulfation pattern, comprising also 4-, 6-, and 4,6-disulfated galactose units was found. Expand
Polysaccharides from the green seaweed Codium decorticatum. Structure and cell wall distribution.
TLDR
By in situ localization it was possible to detect two similar fibrillar layers separated by a zone rich in charged polymers, Besides, arabinogalactan proteins co-localized with the fibrillsar components. Expand

Full structure of the O-specific polysaccharide of Proteus mirabilis O24 containing 3,4-O-[(S)-1-carboxyethylidene]-D-galactose.
TLDR
A revision using 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy and methylation analysis resulted in determination of the following full structure of the repeating unit of the O-specific polysaccharide: carbohydrate sequence where D-Gal3,4(S-Pyr) is 3,4-O-[(S)-1-carboxyethylidene]-D-galactose. Expand

An anticoagulant proteoglycan from the marine green alga, Codium pugniformis
TLDR
An anticoagulant isolated from the marine green alga Codium pugniformis was composed mainly of glucose with minor amounts of arabinose and galactose and contained protein and was thus a proteoglycan, which showed similar activities to heparin, but was weaker thanHeparin. Expand
