Purification, Chemical Characterization and Immunomodulatory Activity of a Sulfated Polysaccharide from Marine Brown Algae Durvillaea antarctica

The results proved that DAP4 exhibited excellent immunomodulatory activities, such as promoted the proliferation of spleen lymphocytes, increased NO production, as well as enhanced phagocytic of macrophages, and could also produce better enhancement on the vitality of NK cells.

Ion-exchange purification and structural characterization of five sulfated fucoidans from brown algae

Ion-exchange chromatography efficiently removes the polysaccharides alginate and laminarin and other contaminants such as proteins and phlorotannins across a broad range of fucoidans from major brown algal orders including Ectocarpales, Laminariales and Fucales.

Anticoagulant and antithrombotic activities of modified xylofucan sulfate from the brown alga Punctaria plantaginea.

Is the transformation of fucoidans in human body possible?

Fucoidan Characterization: Determination of Purity and Physicochemical and Chemical Properties

The current article highlights the different spectrometric and nonspectrometric methods applied for the characterization of native fucoidans, including degree of purity, sugar monomeric composition, sulfation pattern and content, molecular mass, and glycosidic linkages.

A Comprehensive and Comparative Analysis of the Fucoidan Compositional Data Across the Phaeophyceae

In the current review, compositional data on fucoidans extracted from more than hundred different species were surveyed through the available literature. The analysis of crude extracts, purified



A study of fucoidan from the brown seaweed Chorda filum.

Polysaccharides of algae 65. Unusual polysaccharide composition of the pacific brown alga Punctaria plantaginea

Quantitative determination revealed the presence of storage glucan (6.0%), fucoidan (19.2%) and alginate (12.7%) in the biomass of the brown alga Punctaria plantaginea collected from the Sea of

Biological Activities of Fucose-Containing Polysaccharide Ascophyllan Isolated from the Brown Alga Ascophyllum nodosum

A fucose-containing, sulfated polysaccharide ascophyllan was isolated from the brown alga Ascophyllum nodosum and inhibited the proliferation of U937 cells in a concentration-dependent manner, and DNA-fragmentation and typical apoptotic nuclear morphological changes were observed in the Ascophyllan-treated cells.

An unfractionated fucoidan from Ascophyllum nodosum: extraction, characterization, and apoptotic effects in vitro.

An unfractionated fucoidan was extracted from the brown alga Ascophyllum nodosum. Extraction of fucoidan from seaweed was carried out using an innovative low-chemical process. A combinational

Sulfated fucans, fresh perspectives: structures, functions, and biological properties of sulfated fucans and an overview of enzymes active toward this class of polysaccharide.

The availability of purified fucans and fucan fractions with simple, but varied structures, in conjunction with the development of new enzymatic tools, demonstrate that the biological properties of sulfation are not only a simple function of their charge density but also are determined by detailed structural features.
