Biotechnological applications of algal polysaccharide as emulsifiers, thickeners and laxatives have led to the screening and selection of certain diazotrophic filamentous cyanobacteria from saline/alkaline soil of Madhya Pradesh, India. Strain specific variation in cell bound, extracellular and total polysaccharide content was quantified under laboratory conditions. Among the cyanobacterial isolates examined Nostoc calcicola RDU-3 was found to produce highest amount (105 mg l−1) of… CONTINUE READING
