Oligosaccharides

Antioxidant activity and hepatoprotective potential of agaro-oligosaccharides in vitro and in vivo

Tagged:  

Background: Agaro-oligosaccharides derived from red seaweed polysaccharide have been reported to possess antioxidant activity. In order to assess the live protective effects of agaroligosaccharid...

Dietary prebiotic oligosaccharides are detectable in the faeces of formula-fed infants

Tagged:  

Human milk oligosaccharides are not digested during intestinal passage and can be detected in stools. In this study it was investigated whether a prebiotic mixture of low-molecular-weight galacto...

Protection of liposomes against fusion during drying by oligosaccharides is not predicted by the calorimetric...

Tagged:  

Sugars play an important role in the desiccation tolerance of most anhydrobiotic organisms. It has been shown in previous studies that different structural families of oligosaccharides have diffe...

Galacto-oligosaccharides and long-chain fructo-oligosaccharides as prebiotics in infant formulas--A review

Tagged:  

The present review summarizes clinical and experimental data concerning the possible effects of a prebiotic mixture of short-chain galacto-oligosaccharides and long-chain fructo-oligosaccharides....

Differential effects of oligosaccharides on the hydration of simple cations

Tagged:  

Changed ion hydration properties near surfaces, proteins, and deoxyribose nucleic acid have been reported before in the literature. In the present work, we extend this work to carbohydrates: We h...
