Polysaccharide production by a reduced pigmentation mutant of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans
TLDR
A reduced pigmentation mutant was isolated from Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 42023 by chemical mutagenesis and was subsequently characterized and it was noted that the pullulan content of the polysaccharide produced by the parent or mutant strain was lower for sucrose- grown cells than for glucose-grown cells.

TLDR
Th thin stillage has the potential to act as a substrate for the commercial production of food-grade malic acid by the A. niger strains.
Polysaccharide production by a reduced pigmentation mutant of Aureobasidium pullulans NYS‐1
Aims: To isolate a reduced pigmentation mutant of Aureobasidium pullulans NYS‐1 and characterize its cellular pigmentation plus its polysaccharide and biomass production relative to carbon source.

  • 1 December 2000
TLDR
The production of the exopolysaccharide pullulan using entrapped cells of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 201253 was investigated and fungal cells entrapping in carrageenan demonstrated a lower degree of leakage than did thoseEntrapped in agarose.
A pullulan‐degrading enzyme activity of Aureobasidium pullulans
A pullulan‐degrading enzyme activity was detected in the culture medium after growth of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans on corn syrup as a carbon source. The product of pullulan catabolism by this

TLDR
Xylitol was produced by selected species of the yeast Candida after growth on a medium containing a hydrolysate of the North American perennial prairie grass big bluestem by a combination of dilute acid and enzymatic treatments.
Curdlan production by Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 on an ethanol fermentation coproduct
The production of the polysaccharide curdlan from the ethanol processing coproduct condensed corn distillers solubles by the bacterium Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 was investigated. It was found that
Rhodospirillum rubrum: utilization of condensed corn solubles for poly‐(3‐hydroxybutyrate‐co‐3‐hydroxyvalerate) production
Aims:  This study sought to develop a less expensive medium for growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate‐producing bacterium Rhodospirillum rubrum from the ethanol production coproduct, condensed corn
Effect of oils and surfactants on pullulan production relative to nitrogen source
The effect of selected vegetable oils, fatty acids and surfactants on pullulan production by Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 42023 relative to nitrogen source was studied in a corn syrup-based medium.
