Pectic polysaccharides have been isolated from callus tissue of the stem of Sosnowskyi’s hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi Manden) by extraction with a 0.7% aqueous solution of ammonium oxalate and characterized. It was shown that they differ from pectic polysaccharides of a native plant by a lower content of D‑galacturonic acid residues and a higher content of arabinose and galactose residues. The results obtained by a combination of ion exchange chromatography, enzymatic hydrolysis, periodate oxidation, methylation and NMR spectroscopy indicated the presence of low-methyl esterified 1,4-α-D-galacturonan, rhamogalacturonan-I, arabinan and galactan or arabinogalactan. The terminal 1,2- and 1,5-linked arabinofuranose residues, terminal, 1,3-, 1,6-linked and 3,6-substituted galactopyranose residues and 1,4-linked hexopyranose (galactopyranose or glucopyranose) residues were identified in the composition of neutral carbohydrate chains. The presence in the NMR spectra of trans-glycosyl correlation peaks of the methyl groups of 2,4-di-O-substituted rhamnose residues indirectly confirm the attachment arabinan, galactan or arabinogalactan carbohydrate chains to rhamnopyranose residues of the backbone at C-4 position.
