Among the four methods for extracting extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) from Rhodopseudomonas acidophila (EDTA, NaOH, H2SO4, heating/centrifugation), EDTA extraction was found to be the most effective. The contents of the major components of EPS from R. acidophila, i.e., carbohydrate, protein and nucleic acid, were 6.5, 58.4 and 5.4 mg g−1 dry cells, respectively. The optimum extraction time was 1–3 h and the EDTA dosage was approximately 2.8 g g−1 dry cells. Under these conditions, no… CONTINUE READING
