Abstract

Abstract A purified mucoid has been obtained from the bovine submaxillary glands by chloroform-Naxonate G treatment. The mucoid exhibits electrophoretic homogeneity with a mobility of −5.1 × 10 −5cm 2/V/sec at pH 7.8 and −7.8 × 10 −5cm 2/V/sec at pH 10.3. The compound contains hexosamine, 21.8 per cent (2.84 per cent glucosamine and 18.96 per cent galactosamine), sialic acid, 25.0 per cent, with traces of fucose and uronic acid. The mucoid exhibits a viscosity of 19.9 cP at 0.5 per cent in water and 2.76 cP at 0.5 per cent in 0.2 M phosphate buffer, pH 7.0.
