The polysaccharide “xylan”
is a plant cell wall-forming polysaccharide that is the most common after
The backbone of many xylan
in land plants has a structure in which xylose is β-(1→4) bonded. The
obtained by enzymatic degradation
of this xylan
have a prebiotic effect. On the other hand, the oligosaccharides
obtained from β-(1→3)-xylan,
possessed by some green algae, have cancer cell apoptosis-inducing action.
Xylan in Dulse
As shown in the figure, Dulse's
has both β-(1→3) and β-(1→4) bonds in the backbone. The oligosaccharide
obtained from it has a structure
different from that of conventional xylooligosaccharides.
And it is considered to
have a unique health function.
In this study, we explore the
health function of xylooligosaccharides
for effective utilization of marine
waste. Therefore, this xylooligosaccharide
was prepared here. In addition, the structure of this xylooligosaccharide
