Development of Red Seaweed Polysaccharides

Development of Red Seaweed Polysaccharides

Red seaweed is one of the most ancient and colossal eukaryotic algae, comprising over 10,000 documented species. Red seaweed is known as the source of unique sulfated galactans, such as agar, agarose, and carrageenan. The extensive practical uses of these polysaccharides are based on their capacity to generate robust gels in aqueous solutions and their diverse structures. Polysaccharide diversity can be further increased by acetylation, methylation, and in the case of many marine algal polysaccharides, more commonly sulfation. Additionally, numerous algal polysaccharides exhibit metabolic activity, serving as either reservoir molecules that undergo structural modifications throughout their life cycle or as integral components of structures. Red seaweed polysaccharides have emerged as an enthralling realm of scientific research due to their immense potential across various disciplines, encompassing food, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology. CD BioSciences, an esteemed scientific establishment dedicated to innovation and excellence, has embarked on a mission to unravel the extraordinary properties and applications of these polysaccharides.
