In present work, AlAPS-2 showed stronger scavenging abilities than AlAPS and other fractions on hydroxyl and DPPH radicals.
And the AlAPS and its fractions had hepatoprotective effects by stabilizing the plasma membrane as well as repairing the hepatic tissue damage.
Interestingly, the treatment with AlAPS and its fractions (AlAPS-1, AlAPS-2, and AlAPS3) remarkably enhanced the antioxidant enzyme activities and reduced the lipid peroxidation contents, indicating that the polysaccharides extracted and purified form A.
In conclusion, both AlAPS and its purified fractions of AlAPS-1, AlAPS-2, and AlAPS-3 from A.
