Deniaud-Bouët, E., Hardouin, K., Potin, P., Kloareg, B., & Hervé, C. (2017). A review about brown algal cell walls and fucose-containing sulfated polysaccharides: Cell wall context, biomedical properties and key research challenges. Carbohydrate polymers, 175, 395-408.
In this review we bridge two distinct aspects of cell wall components from brown algae: the recent progress in term of cell wall architecture and the potential therapeutic usages of the fucose-containing sulfated polysaccharides extracted from these walls. We further assess the key remaining challenges to be addressed in these research fields.
