Laminarin, Thiol modified
Synonym: Thiolated laminarin, sulfhydryl modified laminarin, laminarin cystein conjugate.
Thiol modified laminarin is one of Nanocs polysaccharide derivatives that have thiol/sulfhydryl groups covalently attached to the laminarin backbone. Laminarin, also known as laminaran, is a water soluble polysaccharide of glucose found in brown algae and utilized as a food reserve. Laminarin contains 1,3-linked-beta-d-glucose residues with different degrees of 6-Obranching and beta-(1,6) intrachain links.
Nanocs provides a number of modified laminarin conjugates that can be used for enzymatic activity study and other biomedical research use.
