. Cellulose, the most important constituent of plant cell wall is made up of


A. branched chain of glucose molecule lined by a, 1,6 glycosidic bond at the site of branching

B. unbranched chain of glucose molecule linked by a, 1, glycosidic bond

C. branched chain of glucose molecule linked by b, 1, 4 glycosidic bond in straight chain and a, 1, 6 glycosidic bond at the site of branching

D. unbranched chain of glucose molecules linked by b, 1, 4 glycosidic bond

Best Answer

Solution ||| Cellulose (C6H10O5)n is the most abundant organic polymer. It is a polysaccharide and consists of long unbranched chains of glucose residues linked by b, 1-4 glycosidic bonds. In plants, cellulose is formed from sugar. It serves as building material in the formation of cell wall.
