Abstract

Xylans are important components of plant cell walls. The main component in xylans is xylose, which forms the backbone (1,2). Arabinose and 4-O-methylglucuronic acid exist as side groups. In addition several xylans contain acetyl substituents. Some xylans also contain phenolic acid, mainly ferulic acid side groups. The composition and structure of xylans depends on the plant species and may even vary between different parts of the same plant e.g. stem and grain, or even in various parts of the grain e.g. aleuronic layer and endosperm.
