Enzymes with activity toward Xyloglucan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Xyloglucans are plant cell wall polysaccharides, which belong to the hemicellulose class. Here the structural variations of xyloglucans will be reviewed. Subsequently, the anchoring of xyloglucan in the plant cell wall will be discussed. Enzymes involved in degradation or modification of xyloglucan are dealt with, especially with the determination of transferase activity. Fially, a few applications in the food industry will be described
