A fucoidan-utilizing marine bacterium, Fucophilus fucoidanolyticus, was cultivated in medium containing fucoidan from Cladosiphon okamuranus. The C. okamuranus fucoidan was digested into oligosaccharides with the intracellular enzymes of F. fucoidanolyticus, and their structures were determined by nuclear magnetic resonance analyses. Some of their structures are represented by one general structural formula, (-3L-Fucpα1-3L-Fucp(4-O-sulfate)α1-3L-Fucp(4-O-sulfate)α1-3(D-GlcpUAα1-2)L-Fucpα1) m… CONTINUE READING
