Development of Marine Oligosaccharides

Development of Marine Oligosaccharides

Marine oligosaccharides occur naturally in algae and/or are produced by hydrolysis of derived polysaccharides. Marine oligosaccharides have various biological activities, including antioxidant, antiviral and antitumor activities. The biological relevance of algal marine oligosaccharides has potential implications for numerous applications in industrial biotechnology. They have proven to be crucial in many industrial applications such as biomedical/pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, nutraceuticals, prebiotics, environmental protection, feed, wastewater management, algal biomaterials, etc. Furthermore, due to the complexity and heterogeneity of marine oligosaccharide structures, their composition and sequence analysis remains a challenging task. In order to use them effectively, more research must be done to understand the structural properties of these oligosaccharides. At CD BioSciences, our scientists have provided the structural characterization of these oligosaccharides in a more precise, reproducible and reliable manner using mass spectrometry (MS) for fine structure analysis of marine oligosaccharides from algae.
