Global dextran market is expected to grow at a positive CAGR in the predicted period. Dextran is a complex branched glucan (Polysaccharide made of many glucose molecules) Composed of chains of varying lengths (From 3 to 2000 kilodaltons). The straight chain consists of α-1,6 glycosides linkages between glucose molecules, while branches begin from α-1,3 linkages.
Dextran was discovered by Louis Pasteur as a bacterial product in wine but mass production was only possible after the development by Allene Jeanes of a process using bacteria. Dextran is now synthesized from sucrose by certain lactic acid bacteria, the best-known being Leucon Stoc meteoroids and Streptococcus mutants. Dental plaque is rich in dextran’s.
Medicinally it is used as an antithrombotic (antiplatelet) to reduce blood viscosity, and as a volume expander in hypovolemia. The physical and chemical things of purified dextran’s differ contingent on the microbial strains from which they are shaped and by the production method.
Dextran has high water solubility and the solutions behave as Newtonian fluids. Solution viscosity depends on concentration, temperature, and molecular weight, which have a characteristic dispersal. The hydroxyl groups present in dextran offer many sites for derivatization, and these functionalized glycol conjugates represent an essentially unexplored class of biocompatible and environmentally safe compounds.
Accumulative consumer trend towards healthy and additive-free food has made dextran from food grade lactic acid bacteria (LAB) an attractive solution. dextran’s are homopolysaccharides of d-glucose produced by extracellular dextransucrase liberated from LAB of the genera, viz., Leuconostoc, Lactobacillus, Streptococcus, Weissella, and Pedi coccus. dextran have been known for their viscosifying, emulsifying, texturizing, stabilizing attributes in food applications.
Dextran has the potential to be employed as a novel component swapping the commercial hydrocolloids in bakery and other food industries. Prebiotic oligosaccharide manufacture by hydrolysis of dextran is a rather new field, gathering research and industrial attention.
Dextran Market is segmented by class 1T1-T10, Class 2 T10-T70, and Class 3 Above T70.Class 1 dextran’s contain the α (1→6)-linked D-glucopyranosyl backbone modified with small side chains of D-glucose branches with α (1→2), α(1→3), and α(1→4)-linkage. The class 1 dextran’s varies in their molecular weight, spatial arrangement, type and degree of branching, and length of branch chains, depending on the microbial producing strains and cultivation circumstances. Isomaltose and isomaltotriose are oligosaccharides with the class 1 dextran backbone structure. Class 2 dextran’s contain a backbone structure of alternating α (1→3) and α(1→6)-linked D-glucopyranosyl units with α(1→3)-linked branches.
Class 3 dextran’s (mutants) have a backbone structure of consecutive α(1→3)-linked D-glucopyranosyl units with α(1→6)-linked branches. One and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy techniques have been utilized for the structural analysis of dextran’s. Dextran 70 is on the WHO Model list of Indispensable Medicines the most significant medications wanted in a health system.
