Pullulan is an extracellular water-soluble polysaccharide with wide applications. In this study, we screened strains that could selectively produce high molecular weight pullulan for application in industrial pullulan production. A new fungus strain A4 was isolated from soil and identified as Aureobasidium melanogenum based on colony characteristics, morphology, and internally transcribed spacer analysis. Thin-layer chromatography, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic… CONTINUE READING
