A water-soluble polysaccharide, SVP-2, was obtained from Patinopecten yessoensis viscera. Its major structural features were elucidated using composition analysis, methylation analysis, periodate oxidation and Smith degradation, partial acid hydrolysis, and NMR spectroscopy. The results indicated that SVP-2, with an average molecular weight of 170 kDa, was composed of rhamnose, fucose, arabian, xylose, mannose, galactose, and glucose in molar ratios of 1.65:2.54:4.05:5.60:1.48:4.90:1.00. Furthermore, it could deduce that the backbone of SVP-2 consisted of 1,3,4-linked pyran fucose, 1,3,4-linked pyran galactose, and 1,3-linked pyran arabian residues.
