Significance of Pectin and Pectinase with Respect to Biological Application

Shivani Jain [3] | Murtaza Hajoori


Abstract: Pectin, a naturally occurring polysaccharide, has become increasingly important in recent years. Because of its biodegradabilitynature, theadvantages of natural pectin are increasingly appreciated by scientists and consumers. The diethyl ester of polygalacturonic acid is pectin. Citrus peels and apple pomace are commercially extracted under slightly acidic circumstances for pectin. Pectinases are enzymes that break down pectin, which is a chain molecule with a rhamnogalacturonan backbone that is linked to other polymers and carbohydrates and pectinases are produced by bacteria, fungus, actinomycetes, and yeast, among other microorganisms.The pectinases are used in the pulp, textile, food, and water treatment sectors, as well as in the food, beverage industries for clarification and also pectin is used in the pharmaceutical business, as well as in the promotion and treatment of health. Matrix tablets, gel beads, and film-coated dosage forms have all been used as potential carriers for drug administration to the gastrointestinal tract. This paper focuses on the significance of pectin and pectinase, microorganisms producing pectinase, factors affecting its activity, enzymatic degradation and its various applications in different industries.
