General description

Cellulose, a β-glucan insoluble in water is an important constituent of plant cell wall. It is a tough, fibrous polysaccharide, which has a linear chain of glucose residues, linked with β-1,4 bond. Plants produces this biopolymer abundantly.

Application

Cellulose (medium fibers) is used in metabolic pathway and carbohydrate applications. Cellulose has been used to study biofuel and biorefinery applications.
Cellulose has been used:
  • for biomass analysis in pyrolysis process
  • in column chromatography to purify organisms from uninfected erythrocytes and white cells
  • as a standard in fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) to study conformational characteristics of bacterial cellulose (BC) obtained from Hestrin-Schramm (HS) medium
  • as a control in diet-related animal studies to evaluate the hypocholesterolemic activity of botryosphaeran
High purity cellulose powders for partition chromatography.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cellulose helps in maintaining the structural stability of plant cell walls. It is an important component of paper and fabrics made from cotton, and linen.
