DEXTRANASE

Dextranase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of dextran, a complex polysaccharide made up of glucose units linked through α-1,6-glycosidic bonds. It targets the α-1,6-glycosidic linkages in dextran, breaking them into smaller fragments. Classified as glycoside hydrolases, dextranases are found in a variety of microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi.

Dextranase plays a key role in degrading dextran, a sticky and viscous polysaccharide produced by bacteria like Leuconostoc and Streptococcus species. Dextran is present in food products, industrial processes, and dental plaque, where it can cause issues such as increased viscosity and reduced shelf life. Thus, using dextranase helps mitigate dextran's undesirable effects.

Immobazymes' Recombinant Dextranase is produced in the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris and purified using immobilized metal ion affinity chromatography, ensuring high purity and activity for industrial applications.
