Structural Analysis of Plant Polysaccharides Now Available at C

  • CD BioGlyco, a biotechnology company that provides a full range of glycobiology-related products, analysis, custom synthesis and design to advance glycobiology research, now provides advanced and comprehensive polysaccharide structure analysis services to meet customers’ needs.


    As an important natural active substance, plant polysaccharides have the advantage of fewer side effects. In recent years, numerous studies have reported that plant-derived active polysaccharides have immunomodulatory, antitumor, antioxidant and hypoglycemic functions. Polysaccharides with multiple functional groups (hydroxyl, amino, and carboxylic acid groups) can be further modified for biomedical applications, such as vaccine adjuvants, drug carriers, and tissue engineering scaffolds. Understanding the structure of plant polysaccharides will help to elucidate their biological activities and discover new biological functions.


    Nevertheless, plant polysaccharides are still a mystery for us. The structure of polysaccharides is usually very complex and requires extensive use of various chemical methods, instrumental analytical methods, and biological methods to determine. The relationship between structure and activity is also unclear, making the study of plant polysaccharides more challenging.


    With rich experience in polysaccharide structure identification, conformation analysis, and biological activity testing, CD BioGlyco provides a systematic plant polysaccharide separation service to ensure the in-depth study of active polysaccharides at a later stage and further explore the molecular basis and mechanism of plant polysaccharides.


    According to the information based on its official website, the following methods are utilized to analyze plant polysaccharides structure:


    Determination of primary structure

    Detection of polysaccharide homogeneity

    Determination of molecular weight of polysaccharides

    Monosaccharide composition

    Analysis of chain structure of polysaccharides


    Conformational analysis of polysaccharides

    Scanning electron microscopy (SEM)

    Atomic force microscopy (AFM)

    X-ray diffraction

    Circular dichroism chromatography


    “With systematic and comprehensive structural analysis technology platforms, standardized and transparent experimental procedures, we are sure to bring convenience to all of you.” Commented one of the representative speakers from CD BioGlyco.
