Polysaccharide and proteins are the major constituent building blocks of biological systems and often occur as highly organized macromolecular architectures (. the capsid of viruses). Both can occur in the same or in different biological physiological environment interacting in specific or non-specific ways. The branching of retardation spectra and the development of new characteristic retardation times in real time (during the experiment) were shown. Polysaccharides are a unique source of organic materials in terms of abundance, structural diversity and functionalities View full-text.
Polysaccharides are complex biomacromolecules that are made up chains of monosaccharides. The bonds that form these chains are glycosidic bonds. Commonly found monomer units in polysaccharides are glucose, fructose, mannose and galactose which are simple sugars. Types of Polysaccharides. Polysaccharides can be broadly classified into two classes: – are made up of one type of monosaccharide units. ex: cellulose, starch, glycogen.
The usefulness of these water-soluble carbohydrate polymers in industry undoubtedly relies on the wide range of their functional properties. Chief among polysaccharide characteristics is their ability to modify the properties of. aqueous environments, that is their capacity to thicken, chelate, emulsify, stabilize, encapsulate, flocculate, swell and suspend, or to form gels, films and membranes.
Some polysaccharides have other functional groups as well as the simple hydroxyl groups. Alginates and pectins are based on uronic acids; their monosaccharide constituents are all oxidised at C-6 to the carboxylic acid level.

The undigested polysaccharides of seaweed can form important sources of dietary fibres, although they might modify digestibility of dietary protein and minerals. Apparent digestibility and retention coefficients of Ca, Mg, Fe, Na and K were lower in seaweed-fed rats (Urbano and Goñi 2002). Besides directly inhibiting the growth of tumour cells, fucoidans can also restrain the development and diffusion of tumour cells through enhancing the body’s immuno-modulatory activities, because fucoidan mediates tumour destruction through type 1 T-helper (Th1) cell and NK cell responses (Maruyama et al.
The authoritative book discusses polysaccharides utilized in medical applications such as. .
The exploration of seaweed polysaccharides for drug delivery applications is still in its infancy. Luo, . Wang, Q. Recent development of chitosan-based polyelectrolyte complexes with natural polysaccharides for drug delivery. Alginate, carrageenan, fucoidan, ulvan, and laminarin are polysaccharides commonly isolated from seaweed. These natural polymers can be converted into nanoparticles (NPs) by different types of methods, such as ionic gelation, emulsion, and polyelectrolyte complexing.
