Abstract null null Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is considered as the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome, ranging from benign steatosis to severe non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Recently, it has been found that lipophagy plays a pivotal role in lipid turnover, which can alleviate NAFLD in hepatocytes. In this study, we found that a highly sulfated glucuronomannan hexamer G6S1 has the ability to enhance lipophagy. When treated with G6S1, the number and the size of lipid droplet...

Abstract Laminarin (LA), a storage glucan, was purified from the brown alga Sargassum thunbergii. After specific oxidation using the stable nitroxyl radical, 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl (TEMPO), together with NaBr and NaClO, glucoglucuronan (LAO) was obtained. Compositional analysis of LAO showed a molar ratio of glucuronic acid (GlcA) to glucose (Glc) of 12.7: 1. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectroscopy (MS) showed LAO to have a backbone of (1 → 3)-linked β-D-GlcpA inters...
