Mild acid-catalysed hydrolysis of the extracellular phosphomannan of the yeast Pichia holstii NRRL Y-2448 produces a high-molecular-weight phosphomannan core, a low-molecular-weight oligosaccharide phosphate fraction, and a neutral oligosaccharide fraction. A method was developed for the large-scale preparation of the oligosaccharide phosphate fraction, consisting predominantly of the pentasaccharide phosphate, 6-O-PO3H2-alpha-D-Man-(1 --> 3)-alpha-D-Man-(1 --> 3)-alpha-D-Man-(1 C 3)-alpha-D-Man-(1 --> 2)-D-Man, for use in the manufacture of the promising new anti-cancer agent, PI-88. Further insights were also gained into the structure of the phosphomannan by HPLC analysis of the time course of the hydrolysis reaction.
