Production of a hypoglycemic, extracellular polysaccharide from the submerged culture of the mushroom, Phellinus linteus
Mycelial growth and extracellular polysaccharide production of Phellinus linteus were optimal at pH 5 and 25 °C. Maximum biomass production (14.2 g l−1) was after 15 d of cultivation, whereas,Expand
