Isolation, modification and characterization of rye water soluble arabinoxylans and protein

Krzysztof Buksa , Anna Nowotna , Rafał Ziobro


The aim of the study was to examine physico-chemical properties of water soluble arabinoxylans (native and enzymatically modified by hydrolysis and cross-linking) and protein isolated from rye grain. SEC (Suze Exclusion Chromatography) combined with refractometric (RI) and UV detection allowed to determine molecular mass of isolated arabinoxylands and distribution of ferulic acid along arabinoxylan chains. The effectiveness of applied modifications was confirmed – hydrolysed arabinoxylans had the smallest, and cross-linked arabinoxylans had the highest molecular mass. Furthermore SEC analysis of isolated rye protein allowed to identify biomolecules predominantly of molecular mass in the range 25000-90000 g/mol, which is corresponding to γ-secalins and ω-secalins. The highest impact on water absorption of rye flour had arabinoxylands of the highest molecular mass (present in preparation of cross-linked arabinoxylans).
