Amethod for producing an amylose-containing rayon fiber, comprising the steps of: mixing an aqueous alkaline solution of amylose with viscose to obtain a mixed liquid, spinning the mixed liquid to obtain an amylose-containing rayon fiber, and bringing the amylose-containing rayon fiber into contact with iodine or polyiodide ions, thereby allowing an amylose in the amylose-containing rayon fiber to make a clathrate including the iodine or polyiodide ions, wherein the amylose is an enzymatically synthesized amylose having a weight average molecular weight of 3 x 10^(4) or more and 2 x 10^(5) or less. A method for collecting iodine from branckish water with high efficiency utilizing the amylase-containing rayon fibers.

An object of the present invention is to provide a uronic acid-containing glucan or a modified product thereof. The glucuronic acid-containing glucan of the present invention is a glucuronic acid-containing glucan in which a glucuronic acid residue is bound to at least one non-reducing end of a glucan, and the glucan is a branched -1,4 glucan or a linear -1,4 glucan. The glucuronic acid-containing glucan of the present invention can be provided by allowing -glucan phosphorylase derived from Aquifex aeolicus VF5 to act on glucuronic acid-1-phosphate to thereby transfer a glucuronic acid residue to the non-reducing end of the receptor glucan.

Provided is a preparation method for phycocyanin, including: adding chitosan to a suspension of cyanobacteria containing phycocyanin; and filtering the suspension.


An object of the present invention is to provide a glucan containing at least one residue selected from an N-acetylglucosamine residue and a galactose residue, and a modified product. The branched glucan of the present invention is a branched glucan wherein the branched glucan has a plurality of non-reducing ends and at least one residue selected from an N-acetylglucosamine residue and a galactose residue is bound via an -1,4-bond to each of two or more non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan, but neither an N-acetylglucosamine residue nor a galactose residue is present at the position other than the non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan.


An object of the present invention is to provide a glucosamine-containing glucan, a modified product and a conjugate thereof. The glucosamine-containing glucan of the present invention is a glucosamine-containing glucan wherein the glucan has a plurality of non-reducing ends and at least one glucosamine residue is bound via an -1,4-bond to each of two or more non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan, but no glucosamine residue is present at a position other than the non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan, wherein the degree of polymerization of the glucan is 15 or more and 4 x 10^(5) or less. Theglucosamine-containingglucan of the present invention can be provided by allowing an -glucan phosphorylase to act on an aqueous solution comprising a branched -1,4-glucan and glucosamine-1-phosphate.


An object of the present invention is to provide a method for industrially producing a branched glucan having a cyclic structure. The method for producing a branched glucan having a cyclic structure comprises the steps of: (1) preparing a mixed liquid which contains a branching enzyme in which starch granules are suspended at a concentration of 5% by weight or more and 50% by weight or less, and allowing the branching enzyme to act on starch in the starch granules, wherein a temperature of the mixed liquid at the time of preparation is 0 C. or higher and not higher than the gelatinization starting temperature of the starch granule; and (2) elevating the temperature of the mixed liquid to 85 C. or higher and 129 C. or lower, wherein in the method, none of -amylase, -amylase, amyloglucosidase and a transglucosidase is added to the mixed liquid.


Provided is an external preparation for skin, comprising a phosphorylated saccharide. The phosphorylated saccharide may be an inorganic salt of a phosphorylated saccharide. The phosphorylated saccharide may be a calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron or sodium salt. Also provided is an external preparation for skin, comprising a phosphorylated saccharide and a second component, wherein the second component is selected from the group consisting of moisturizing agents, whitening components, ultraviolet absorbents, anti-inflammatory agents, cell-activating agents and antioxidants. The moisturizing agent may be ascorbic acid or an ascorbic acid derivative.


An object of the present invention is to provide a glucan containing at least one residue selected from an N-acetylglucosamine residue and a galactose residue, and a modified product.
