Enzymatic functionalization of cellulosic fibres for textile and other applications: Xyloglucan as a molecular anchor
KTH, School of Biotechnology (BIO), Glycoscience.
2010 (English)In: Advances in Textile Biotechnology, Elsevier, 2010, 266-287 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The inherent recalcitrance of paracrystalline cellulose, which restricts the performance and applications of cellulosic biofibres, has been circumvented by a biomimetic approach that avoids the limitations inherent in direct chemical methods for cellulose modification. The unique ability of the plant enzyme xyloglucan endo-transglycosylase (XET) to produce chemo-enzymatically functionalized xyloglucan (XG) polysaccharides was harnessed together with the inherently strong interaction of XG with cellulose to surface-anchor the XG derivatives. An overview of the use of XG-XET technology in the functionalization of diverse cellulosic substrates is presented. Specific examples are given to highlight the potential of the system for future applications in textiles, pulp and paper, and biomedicine.
