Alex new publication on soluble glucans with immunostimulatory activity

May 18, 2018

Congratulations Alex for the publication of your new article  "Microwave pretreatment of paramylon enhances the enzymatic production of soluble β-1,3-glucans with immunostimulatory activity" Published in Carbohydrate Polymers. The article describe the development of  a new combined physical and enzymatic approach for the hydrolysis of the storage polysaccharide paramylon from Euglena.  The work also presents a new simple, sensitive and time-saving dye-based method to assess the efficacy of the microwave pretreatment on paramylon granules. Finally, the established hydrothermal microwave pretreatment of paramylon granules significantly enhanced the enzymatic hydrolysis of paramylon to bioactive oligosaccharides.
