The production of the exopolysaccharide pullulan using entrapped cells of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 201253 was investigated. Fungal cells entrapped in agarose or carrageenan were capable of elaborating pullulan for 2 production cycles. Those fungal cells entrapped in carrageenan were more productive than the agarose‐immobilized cells during the initial cycle while the reverse was true during the second production cycle. The agarose‐entrapped cells synthesized polysaccharide with a…

TLDR
The productivity of the immobilized cells increased during the second production cycle while its pullulan content decreased, and the level of cell leakage from the support remained unchanged for both production cycles.

TLDR
It was found that the cells immobilized on the ECTEOLA-cellulose at pH 2.0 produced higher pullulan levels than those cells immobilizing at pH 3.0, which was not statistically significant.

TLDR
The production of the exopolysaccharide pullulan using entrapped cells of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 42023 was investigated relative to carbon source and independent of carbon source, the entrapping fungal cells exhibited a higher yield during the initial cycle than the second production cycle.

TLDR
The objectives of the present work were to review the literature on fungal EPS, reporting fermentation parameters for growing fungi, and the effect of carbon source, organic and inorganic nitrogen, aeration, agitation, microelements, addition of antifoam, and factors of growth on EPS production.
Optimization of pullulan production using Ca-alginate-immobilized Aureobasidium pullulans by response surface methodology
BACKGROUND: The production of pullulan from synthetic medium by Aureobasidium pullulans P56 immobilized in Ca-alginate beads was investigated using batch and repeated batch fermentation systems.
Efficient pullulan production by bioconversion using Aureobasidium pullulans as the whole-cell catalyst
TLDR
Results indicated that pullingulan bioconversion using A. pullulans CCTCC M 2012259 as the whole-cell catalyst is an attractive approach for efficient pullulan production and can be applied for the production of other polysaccharides.
Pullulan: biosynthesis, production, and applications
TLDR
An overview ofpullulan’s chemistry, biosynthesis, applications, state-of-the-art advances in the enhancement of pullulan production through the investigations of enzyme regulations, molecular properties, cultivation parameters, and bioreactor design is presented.
Production and applications of pullulan
Continuous pullulan fermentation in a biofilm reactor
TLDR
Overall, the increased pullulan productivity can be achieved through biomass retention by using PCS biofilm reactor.

TLDR
The immobilization of Aureobasidium pullulans by adsorption on solid supports and entrapment in open pore polyurethane foam showed similar fermentation characteristics and could be repeatedly used for pullulan biosynthesis.
Elevated polysaccharide production by mutants of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans
TLDR
The dry weights of the mutant cells were found not to differ greatly from those of the parent cells whether corn syrup or sucrose served as the carbon source, and the pullulan content of the polysaccharide elaborated by the parent was higher than either mutant.
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.
