The aim of this work was to investigate the fermentation optimization, molecular characterization, and antioxidant activity in vitro of exopolysaccharides (EPS) from Morchella crassipes in submerged culture. Firstly, an optimal medium for EPS production was obtained by single-factor experiment and central composite design as follows: maltose 44.79 g/L and tryptone 4.21 g/L. Then, one fraction of EPS was obtained from the culture filtrates by size exclusion chromatography and the molecular… CONTINUE READING
