Substrate Report for: Ferulic-acid

Ferulic acid is the most abundant hydroxycinnamic acid derivative in plant cell walls. It comprises 0.3 %3.3 % of the dry weight of cereals. Ferulic acid is the product of hydrolysis of ethyl ferulate used as model substrate for the Ferulic-acid esterase. Cinnamic acids have been demonstrated to be covalently bound to polysaccharides (arabinoxylans and pectins) in cell walls of gramineous plants. They have a possible function in decreasing cell wall biodegradability and in regulating cell growth by covalently cross-linking cell wall polymers. To degrade these cell wall polymers, many bacteria and fungi produce a wide range of hemicellulases, as well as cinnamic acid esterases. Several cinnamic acid esterases have been isolated from Aspergillus niger. Most of these esterases are active on methyl esters of ferulic and p-coumaric acids, but other hemicellulases increase the hydrolysis of these cinnamic acids from xylan. Ferulic acid is also a substrate of the esterification of alcohols by lipases
