Xylan from Beechwood
Research grade Xylan from Beechwood
Xylan is a hemicellulose complex carbohydrate derived from the cell walls of beechwood and is considered the second most abundant polysaccharide next to cellulose.
Xylan has promise as a biodegradable coating for drug delivery to the colon. It is degraded by xylanases and B-xylosidases which can be found in the lower intestine and not in the upper GI.
It is also used in enzyme assays and invitro diagnostics.
