Product Description

Xylenes are a group of glycoside hydrolase enzymes that degrade the linear polysaccharide xylem into xylose by catalyzing the hydrolysis of the glycoside linkage (β-1,4) of xyloses. Xylenes are any of a class of enzymes that degrade the linear polysaccharide xylem into xylose, thus breaking down hemicellulose, one of the major components of plant cell walls. As such, it plays a major role in micro-organisms thriving on plant sources for the degradation of plant matter into usable nutrients. Xylenes are produced by fungi, bacteria, yeast, marine algae, protozoans, snails, crustaceans, insects, seeds, etc., and mammals do not produce xylenes. However, the principal. The commercial source of xylenes is filamentous fungi. Commercial applications for xylenes include the chlorine-free bleaching of wood pulp prior to the papermaking process, and the increased digestibility of silage. Apart from its use in the pulp and paper industry, xylenes are also used as food additives for poultry; in wheat
