About this book

Alginates: Biology and Applications provides an overview of the state of art of alginate material properties, genetics and the molecular mechanisms underlying alginate biosynthesis as well as applications of tailor-made alginates in medicine, food and biotechnology.

Topics treated are:

  • material properties of alginates
  • alginate production: precursor biosynthesis, polymerization and secretion
  • bacterial system for alginate uptake and degradation
  • enzymatic alginate modification
  • alginate gene regulation
  • role of alginate in bacterial biofilms
  • microbial production of alginates: physiology and process aspects
  • alginate-based blends and nano/microbeads
  • applications of alginates in food
  • alginate and its comonomer mannuronic acid: medical relevance as drugs
