Polysaccharides: Bioactivity and Biotechnology by Kishan Gopal Ramawat, Jean-Michel Mérillon

By Kishan Gopal Ramawat, Jean-Michel Mérillon

This authoritative reference paintings offers complete information regarding essentially the most vital and so much commonplace sessions of (bio)organic compounds: the polysaccharides. the great and punctiliously updated instruction manual offers the assets, id, research, biosynthesis, biotechnology and purposes of significant polysaccharides likes starches, cellulose, chitin, gum and microbial polysaccharides. Polysaccharides can show advanced constitution and diverse sensible actions. those bio macromolecules can accordingly function uncooked fabrics for numerous varied fabrics, e.g. rayon, cellulose acetate, celluloid and nitrocellulose; they usually locate a number of functions, for example as surgical threads (chitin), as assets of strength, nutritional fibers, as blood circulation adjuvants, in cosmetics, emulsion stabilizers, movie formers, binders, viscosity expanding brokers or dermis conditioning agenta, as foodstuff ingredients in gums, chewing gum bases and as vaccines. Polysaccharides shape the foundation for invaluable items, like xanthan gum, dextran, welan gum, gellan gum, diutan gum and pullulan. a number of the polysaccharide-derived items have attention-grabbing and precious houses and express organic actions, akin to immunomodulatory, antibacterial, anti-mutagenic, radioprotective, anti-oxidative, anti-ulcer, antidepressant, anti-septicaemic or anti inflammatory actions. most of these functions and houses of polysaccharides are for the 1st time compiled in a radical and finished review within the current paintings. This reference paintings is geared up thematically in 4 elements: half I. Polysaccharides: prevalence, constitution, Distribution and Biotechnology. half II. tools. half III. Bioactive Polysaccharides. half IV. Polysaccharides as foodstuff. This reference paintings is edited by way of skilled specialists, all chapters are written via good famous foreign experts. it's helpful to all these operating within the box of botany, phytochemistry, pharmacy, drug supply, molecular biology, metabolomics, forestry, surroundings, conservation, biotechnology and NGOs operating for wooded area protection.
