Abstract: In the present study, polysaccharides named ALPS and ASPS were isolated from Ampelopsis grossedentata leaves and stems, respectively. Physicochemical properties, in vitro antioxidant activities and the inhibitory effects on α-glucosidase of ALPS and ASPS were investigated. It was found that both ALPS and ASPS were acid protein-bound heteropolysaccharides, although with considerably different chemical composition and molecular weight distribution. Meanwhile, in comparison with ALPS, ASPS exhibited stronger antioxidant activity and inhibitory potential against α-glucosidase according to the in vitro evaluation. Moreover, our results suggested that protein and uronic acid might, at least partly, contribute positively to the biological behavior of ALPS and ASPS.
