Isolation and characterization of extracellular polymeric substances from micro-algae Dunaliellasalina under salt stress.


Extracellular polymeric substances (EPSs), produced by Dunaliella salina strain, increase concomitantly with salt concentration and maximum (944 mg/l) were obtained at 5M NaCl, whereas minimum (56 mg/l) at 0.5M salinity. Emulsifying activity was measured in terms of strength to retain the emulsion and comparatively 85.76% retention was observed at 0.5M… (More)
