Data provide direct evidence of a previously proposed glucomannan backbone, but draw into question previously proposed side-chain structures for the polysaccharide from the mucilaginous gel of Aloe vera.The polysaccharide isolated by alcohol precipitation of Aloe vera mucilaginous gel was found to have a Man:Glc:Gal:GalA:Fuc:Ara:Xyl ratio of 120:9:6:3:2:2:1 with traces of Rha and GlcA. Linkage analysis of the endo-(1→4)-β-d-mannanase-treated sample yielded Man p-(1→ (∼26%), 4-Man p (∼53%), 2,4-Man p (∼3%), 3,4-Man p (∼1%), 4,6-Man p (∼1%), 4-Glc p (∼5%), 4-Xyl p (∼1%), Xyl p-(1→ (∼2%), Gal p-(1→ (∼5%), and traces of 4,6-Gal p and 3,6-Gal p. Hydrolysis with strong acids produced a mixture of short oligosaccharides and an acid-resistant fraction containing greater relative fractions of Man p-(1→, Ara f-(1→, Xyl p-(1→, and 4-Xyl p than the bulk polysaccharide. NMR analysis of oligosaccharides generated by endo-(1→4)-β-d-mannanase and acid hydrolysis showed the presence of di-, tri-, and tetrasaccharides of 4-β-Man p, β-Glc p-(1→4)-Man, β-Glc p-(1→4)-β-Man p-(1→4)-Man, and β-Man p-(1→4)-[α-Gal p-(1→6)]-Man, consistent with a backbone containing alternating →4)-β-Man p-(1→ and →4)-β-Glc p-(1→ residues in a ∼15:1 ratio. Analysis of the sample treated sequentially with endo-(1→4)-β-d-mannanase and α-d-galactosidase showed that the majority of α-Gal p-(1→ residues were linked to O-2, O-3, or O-6 of →4)-β-Man p-(1→ residues, with ∼16 →4)-β-Man p-(1→ residues between side chains. Our data provide direct evidence of a previously proposed glucomannan backbone, but draw into question previously proposed side-chain structures.Keywords:13; C NMR; 1; H NMR; Acemannan; Aloe vera; Polysaccharide; Immunostimulant; Immunomodulator

After fresh aloe leaf is cleaned, soaked in disinfection solution for 10-20 min, washed and drip-dried, the rind and gel are separated in special aloe peeler, treated separately and mixed to produce aloe juice, concentrated aloe juice, aloe powder and other product, which may be mixed with some additive in certain amount to produce various final products. The present invention can retain the effective components in aloe fully and control the content of anthraquinone and glycosides. Using instantaneous high-temperature degradation process to replace chemical process in treating aloe juice can reduce production cost greatly.

Acemannan, a major carbohydrate fraction of Aloe vera gel, has been known to have antiviral and antitumoral activities in vivo through activation of immune responses. The present study was set out to define the immunomodulatory activity of acemannan on dendritic cells (DCs), which are the most important accessory cells for the initiation of primary immune responses. Immature DCs were generated from mouse bone marrow (BM) cells by culturing in a medium supplemented with GM-CSF and IL-4, and then stimulated with acemannan, sulfated acemannan, and LPS, respectively. The resultant DCs were examined for phenotypic and functional properties. Phenotypic analysis for the expression of class II MHC molecules and major co-stimulatory molecules such as B7-1, B7-2, CD40 and CD54 confirmed that acemannan could induce maturation of immature DCs. Functional maturation of immature DCs was supported by increased allogeneic mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) and IL-12 production. The differentiation-inducing activity of acemannan was almost completely abolished by chemical sulfation. Based on these results, we propose that the adjuvant activity of acemannan is at least in part due to its capacity to promote differentiation of immature DCs.

Acemannan is a polydispersed beta-(1,4)-linked acetylated mannan with antiviral properties. It is an immunomodulator, and studies in our laboratory have shown that it causes activation of macrophages. Inducible NO synthase is generally expressed after transcriptional induction and is known to mediate some of the cytotoxic action of activated macrophages. Acemannan, in the presence of interferon-gamma, greatly increased the synthesis of NO in RAW 264.7 cells. This increase was preceded by increased expression of mRNA for the inducible form of macrophage NO synthase. Preincubation with pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate inhibited the induction, indicating the involvement of nuclear factor-kappa B. These results suggest that acemannan causes the activation of macrophages by increasing the level of NO synthase at the level of transcription.

The polysaccharide and flavonoid concentrations of two-, three-, and four-year-old Aloe vera were determined, and their antioxidant activities were evaluated compared to BHT and alpha-tocopherol by the DPPH radical scavenging method and the linoleic acid system at 100 microg of soluble solids per mL of ethanol. The results showed that three-year-old Aloe vera contained significantly higher levels of polysaccharides and flavonoids than two- and four-year-old Aloe vera, and no significant differences in flavonoid levels were found between three- and four-year-old Aloe vera. All the aloe extracts showed significant antioxidant activity. The antioxidant activity of Aloe vera extracts and reference compounds followed the order: three-year-old Aloe vera > BHT > four-year-old Aloe vera > alpha-tocopherol > two-year-old Aloe vera. The three-year-old extract exhibited the strongest radical scavenging activity of 72.19%, which is significantly higher than that of BHT at 70.52% and alpha-tocopherol at 65.20%. These data suggest that the growth stage plays a vital role in the composition and antioxidant activity of Aloe vera.

Fractions of leaf gel from Aloe barbadensis Mill. were prepared by gel permeation using DEAE Sephadex A-25, Sepharose 6B, and Sephadex G-50 columns. These were then tested by in vitro assays for proliferation of human normal dermal and baby hamster kidney cells. The glycoprotein fraction promoted cell growth, while the neutral polysaccharide fraction did not show any growth stimulation. Moreover, the polar-colored glycoprotein fraction strongly inhibited the in vitro assays. An active glycoprotein fraction (protein 82%, carbohydrate 11%) examined on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) and SDS-PAGE showed a single band. Its molecular weight was 29 kD on a Sephadex G-50 column and its isoelectric point was pH 6.8. Immunoblotting after SDS-PAGE showed that the glycoprotein was composed of two subunits (14 kD). Deglycosylation of glycoprotein (Pg21-2b fraction) by trifluoromethanesulphonic acid provided a protein band with a molecular weight of 13 kD on SDS-PAGE. The colored glycoprotein fraction was shown on SDS-PAGE to be a mixture with a molecular weight of 18 kD-15 kD. It was later hydrolyzed with 10% H2SO4 to produce phenolic substances.
