Enhanced Synthesis of the Exopolysaccharide Ethapolan by Acinetobacter sp. 12S Grown on a Mixture of Substrates


Enhanced synthesis of the exopolysaccharide ethapolan by Acinetobacter sp. 12S was observed when the bacterium was grown on a mixture of two energetically nonequivalent substrates (ethanol and glucose) taken in a molar proportion of 3.1 : 1. The efficiency of carbon transformation into EPSs was maximum when sodium ions were absent in the medium, the… (More)
