A glucuronomannan (GM) was derived by removal, through Smith degradation, of xylose from the native (3-O-acetylglucurono)xylomannan exopolysaccharide isolated from Tremella mesenterica. 13C-N.m.r. chemical shifts measured at various pD values were compared for p-nitrophenyl beta-D-glucopyranosiduronic acid (1) and two GMs (2 and 3) differing in GlcA content… CONTINUE READING
