Description
Summary:Nutrition plays a critical role in health status both for humans and animals, comprising very complex processes starting with the ingestion of food or feed and ending with the excretion. But in this whole chain of processes, one of the main elements is the enzyme system without which digestion could not be possible. Xylanase is one of the enzymes that can make the difference in the digestion and absorption of some carbohydrates, like the digestion and absorption of fibers, used in various fields - food processing, feed additives, biofuel production, paper and pulp industry, textile industry, as well as waste management. Biochemically, xylanase is an enzyme that breaks down xylan, a complex polysaccharide found in plant cell walls. This paper presents some characteristics of xylanase, the important role in biotechnology, and also some applications of this enzyme.
