Abstract: Mangrove polysaccharide extracts prolonged the time taken for blood clotting, and this was also more pronounced with the assay of activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), than that of prothrombin time (PT). This activity increased with concentrations of extracts used (100, 500, and 1000 µg mL-1) and also with the levels of sulphate present in the samples. The anticoagulant activity was high in Avicennia marina and Aegiceras corniculatum compared to Excoecaria agallocha and Rhizophora spp.
