Description: Pullulan is a neutral polymer composed of α-(1,6)-linked maltotriose residues, which in turn are composed of three glucose molecules connected to each other by an α-(1,4) glycosidic bond. It is non-toxic, non-immunogenic, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic in nature. The structure of pullulan consist unique linkage pattern with two α-(1 → 4) and one α-(1 → 6) glycosidic bonds in maltotriose repeating units (G3). Pullulan endows distinctive physical traits due to the presence of nine hydroxyl groups on glucopyranose rings of G3 units. It can be derivatized in various forms by substituting these hydroxyl groups to enhance its utility in biomedical applications. Branched chain fatty acids (BCFA) are primarily saturated fatty acids (FA) with a methyl branch or more on the carbon chain. BCFA are categorized as mono-, di-, or multi-methyl BCFA. BCFA modulate the biophysical properties of membranes in a manner similar to that of cis double bonds: both interfere with the ability of saturated FA to pack tightly to form rigid, high melting point extended structures, and thus reduce the phase transition temperature of membrane phospholipids.
