They include possibly the most significant polysaccharides when considering enzyme use: pentosans (in particular arabinoxylans) and [beta]-glucans, as well as mannans, arabinans, galactans

2006) found that arabinan, galactan

Pectins are complex carbohydrates with a glucouronic acid/rhamnan main-chains and rhamnan, galactan

In stakes, only galactan
was decreased beyond 30 percent after 4 weeks.
The chemical data indicated that early strength loss (up to 40%) was associated with loss of arabinan and galactan
They proposed a qualitative model in which early strength loss was initially a function of degradation in hemicellulosic side-chain components like arabinan and galactan
