Abstract In vitro degradation studies of pectic polysaccharides with novel fungal pectinases, investigations in which these polymers were treated with dilute acid, and microscopic analysis of extracted pectins have provided clues on how these polysaccharides are linked. Therefore it is believed that pectin is not an extended backbone consisting of homogalacturonan and rhamnogalacturonan regions, but rather a rhamnogalacturonan with neutral sugar and homogalacturonan side chains
