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. Taurine (2-aminoethane- sulfonic acid), an organic osmolyte involved in cell volume regulation, provides a substrate for the formation of bile salts, and plays a role in the modulation of intracellular free calcium concentration. Taurine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the brain and spinal cord, leukocytes, heart and muscle cells, the retina, and indeed almost every tissue throughout the body. There is ever-increasing evidence that taurine depletion leads to a wide range of pathological conditions, including severe cardiomyopathy, renal dysfunction, pancreatic β cell malfunction, and loss of retinal photoreceptor. Succinic acid has many industrial applications, from the food industry, where it is used as an acidifier, flavour‐enhancing substance or bacteriostatic agent.
