Brief Communications


The mannoglucans obtained by the reduction of ketocelluloses are easily cleaved by cellulase preparations, in which connection, depending on the activity ratio of the exo and endo enzymes in the cellulase complex, the predominant hydrolysis products are either monosaccharides (glucose and mannose) or oligosaccharides, in which the residues of these sugars are connected by β-(1→ 4) linkages.
