About the book

Xylanases are hydrolases depolymerizing the plant cell component xylan, the second most abundant polysaccharide. Xylanases are produced by fungi, bacteria, yeast, marine algae, protozoans, snails, crustaceans, insects, seeds, etc., but the principal commercial source is filamentous fungi. Xylanase belonging to pentosanases, a class of enzyme that breaks down cell wall matrix of plants, breaks down xylan into xylose residues. This property of xylanase makes it a commercially important enzyme.

The present book aims to give an insight into the structure, function and applications of xylanase in various industries along with the current trends in xylanase enzyme research.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
