Abstract
In this study, the polysaccharides from Purslane were extracted by ultrasonic method and its content was measured by the phenol-sulfuric acid method using glucose as the standard. The crude polysaccharides were collected and purified by DEAE-Cellulose anion-exchange and Sephadex gel-permeation chromatography. Three fractions were obtained and named POL1, POL2 and POL3, respectively. The molecular weights of these three fractions were measured by Sephadex using dextran standard curve. Escherichia coli, Acetic acid bacteria, Saccharomycetes and Aspergillus Niger were used to study the antibacterial activity of the polysaccharides. The results showed that molecular weights of POL1, POL2 and POL3 were 18Kd, 55kd and 108kd, respectively. The polysaccharides had inhibitory effect on microorganisms, and the inhibited order of microorganisms was: Saccharomycetes>Acetic acid bacteria>Aspergillus Niger>Escherichia coli. In addition, the order of antibacterial activities of these three fractions on microorganisms was: POL3>POL2b>POL1b. It could be concluded that three fractions were obtained by purification. These three fractions had inhibitory effect on Saccharomycetes, Acetic acid bacteria, Aspergillus Niger and Escherichia coli. The antibacterial activity of polysaccharides from Purslane against Saccharomycetes was the strongest, while the weakest against Escherichia coli. In addition, POL3 was found to be the most effective against the tested microorganisms among the three fractions.
