Laminarin

Definition of the noun Laminarin

What does Laminarin mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: laminarins

  1. [carbohydrates] A glucan produced by some brown algae

Explanation

Laminarin: The molecule laminarin is a storage glucan found in brown algae. It is used as a carbohydrate food reserve in the same way that chrysolaminarin is used by phytoplankton, especially in diatoms. It is created by photosynthesis and is made up of β-glucan with β-branches. It is a linear polysaccharide, with a β:β ratio of 3:1. Its hydrolysis is catalyzed by enzymes such as laminarinase that breaks the β bonds.
