The effect of nitrosomethylurea (NMU) at concentrations of 0.2 to 1.0 on Aureobasidium pullulans, strain 8, producing the polysaccharide glucan was studied. The doses of mutagen with the survival of the cells from 0.02 to 8.9% caused high morphological variability of the microorganism and favoured the production of the polysaccharide. The moderate action of… CONTINUE READING
