Lasiodiplodan, an exopolysaccharide of the (1→6)-β-d-glucan type, is produced by Lasiodiplodia theobromae MMPI when grown under submerged culture on glucose. The objective of this study was to evaluate lasiodiplodan production by examining the effects of carbon (glucose, fructose, maltose, sucrose) and nitrogen sources (KNO3, (NH4)2SO4, urea, yeast extract,(More)
AIMS The objective of this study was to analyze the influence of obesity and insulin resistance on tumor development and, in turn, the effect of insulin sensitizing agents. MAIN METHODS Male offspring of Wistar rats received monosodium glutamate (400mg/kg) (obese) or saline (control) from the second to sixth day after birth. Sixteen-week-old control and(More)
Botryosphaeran, a water-soluble exopolysaccharide of the β-(1 → 3;1 → 6)-D-glucan type that has been isolated from the culture medium of Botryosphaeria rhodina MAMB-05 grown in submerged fermentation using glucose as the sole carbon source, was previously demonstrated to be non-genotoxic in peripheral blood and bone marrow, and exhibited strong(More)
Biopolymers such as exopolysaccharides (EPS) are produced by microbial species and possess unusual properties known to modify biological responses, among them are antimutagenicity and immunomodulation. Botryosphaeran, a newly described fungal (1-->3; 1-->6)-beta-d-glucan produced by Botryosphaeria rhodina MAMB-05, was administered by gavage to mice at three(More)
