Enzymic production of a feruloylated oligosaccharide with antioxidant activity from wheat flour arabinoxylan
Summary.Background: Main cereals such as rice, wheat, barley, and corn belong to the family Gramineae and have similar cell-wall composition. Since cereal cell walls are a good source of dietaryExpand

Mode of action of family 10 and 11 endoxylanases on water-unextractable arabinoxylan.
Microbial endo-beta-1,4-xylanases (EXs, EC belonging to glycanase families 10 and 11 differ in their action on water-unextractable arabinoxylan (WU-AX). WU-AX was incubated with differentExpand
