PMID:Cited by: Sources of polysaccharides of particular interest in this chapter are those from plants and include inulin, dextran, xylan and pectin, as their hydrolysis products are purported to be functional foods in the context of gastrointestinal health. An alternative use of degraded polysaccharides is in the treatment of disease. in contrast to proteins, polysaccharides do not have a defined _____. This is because no template is used to make polysaccharides. glucose. In plants, _____ is stored as starch, of which there are 2 forms: amylose and amylopectin (branches ). dental plaque _____ formed by bacterial growing on the surface of teeth is rich in dextrans.

INTRODUCTION. Dental caries results from the interaction of specific bacteria with constituents of the diet within a biofilm termed ‘dental plaque’ (Bowen, ).Sucrose is considered the most cariogenic dietary carbohydrate, because it is fermentable, and also serves as a substrate for the synthesis of extracellular (EPS) and intracellular (IPS) polysaccharides in dental plaque (Newbrun Cited by: Chapter 2: Polysaccharides Polysaccharides are ubiquitous biopolymers built up from monosaccharides. They belong to the carbohydrates (sugars). 99% are located in plants. World sugar production: tons; world oil production: 40 x tons; world cellulose production x tons. Very often, polysaccharides are not pure. They are associated. tococci. On the plaque surface, one observes rods and filaments. Left: Interaction between host and plaque.

The former explanation seems more likely, since Neisseria extracts convert crystalline corn amylose into a glycogen-like polysaccharide without the release of reducing sugars, but fail to do so if heated.
