Alginic acid, free acid, 500 g
A straight-chain, hydrophilic, colloidal, polyuronic acid composed primarily of anhydro-β-D-mannuronic acid residues with 1→4 linkage.
Alginic acid is suitable reagent used to study the in-vitro and in-vivo mitogenic activity of alginates. It is suitable for use in the spectrophotometric determination of transparent exopolymer particles by dye-binding assay.

|Base Catalog Number||15472290|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||It is reported to inhibit the reverse transcriptase activity of HIV. Structural investigation of alginic acid, a marine algal polysaccharide poly-a-L-guluronic acid, has been reported. Anti-inflammatory effect of alginic acid, isolated from the brown algae Sargassum wightii, in type II collagen induced arthritic rats has been reported. Pyrolysis of alginic acid using py-GC/MS over a wide temperature range (200-800°C) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) has been reported. It was reported to cause the biocorrosion of thin films of copper on germanium internal reflection elements (IREs).|
