Schizophyllan belongs to the β-1,3-glucan family and can form a complex with particular polynucleotides.1 We applied this complexation to specifically separate polynucleotides by constructing a schizophyllan-appended column. The column trapped poly(C) and poly(A), while it did not show any affinity to poly(G), which is consistent with the experimental results obtained in the homogenous solution. The present results indicate that the s-SPG column can be a new separation device for biomolecules.
