Dextran is a branched glucan composed of linear α(1→6) linked glucose units and α (1→3) link initiated branches. Dextran ranges in size from 10,000 to 150,000 Kd. Dextrans are used in many applications as volume extenders, stabilizers, matrix components, binding platforms, lubricants and physical structure components.
Historically, dextrans had been long recognized as contaminants in sugar processing and other food production. The formation of dextran in wine was shown by Pasteur to be due to the activity of micro...
