Bacterial Polysaccharides

 Polysaccharides are extended manacles of carbohydrate particles, exactly polymeric carbohydrates collected of monosaccharide parts sure together by glycosidic linkages. This carbohydrate can respond with water (hydrolysis) using amylase enzymes at substance, which crops basic sugars (monosaccharides, or oligosaccharides). They variety in construction from lined to highly branched. Examples comprise storage polysaccharides such as starch and glycogen, and structural polysaccharides such as cellulose and chitin. Polysaccharides are frequently rather mixed, containing slight changes of the repeating unit. Depending on the assembly, these macromolecules can have separate properties from their monosaccharide structure blocks. They may be shapeless or even mysterious in water. When all the monosaccharides in a polysaccharide are the same type, the polysaccharide is called a homopolysaccharide or homoglycan, but when more than one type of monosaccharide is present they are called heteropolysaccharides or heteroglycans.
