Application

Cellulose, a polysaccharide composed of long chains of β(1,4) linked D-glucose units, is used in a wide range of applications that require a carbohydrate structural back-bone such microfibrils, biofilms, and biodegradable composites. It may be used for the preparation of chromatographic structural media, in electrophoresis gels and ionic separations and as a substrate to identify and study cellulosic enzymes such as endoglucanases and β-glucosidase(s) involved with cellulosic systems. Cellulose may be used in saccharification and ethanol fermentation research.

Cell biology heavily relies on the behavior of fibrillar structures, such as the cytoskeleton, yet the analysis of their behavior in tissues often remains qualitative. Image analysis tools have been developed to quantify this behavior, but they often involve an...

In recent years, dietary products with quinoa and buckwheat have attracted attention mostly due to the high nutritive value of their protein fraction. However, their dietary effect on intestinal microbiota activity and related systemic responses are still poorly understood. Therefore...

Here, we report fabrication of polyelectrolyte multilayers by blending a natural glycosaminoglycan (heparin) with semisynthetic cellulose sulfates as polyanions paired with polycation chitosan. Two types of polyanionic blends were prepared by mixing heparin with either cellulose sulfates (CS) of high...

As a heterogeneous process, enzymatic hydrolysis depends on the contact area between enzymes and the cellulose substrate. The surface area of a substrate is typically evaluated through the sorption of gases (nitrogen, argon, or water vapor) or sorption of high-molecular-weight...

Multiple lines of evidence suggest that plant water-use efficiency (WUE)-the ratio of carbon assimilation to water loss-has increased in recent decades. Although rising atmospheric CO2 has been proposed as the principal cause, the underlying physiological mechanisms are still being debated...
