Extracellular polysaccharides produced by 3 strains of Pullularia pullulans were fractionated by treating with cetyl trimethyl ammonium hydroxide into soluble and insoluble fractions, and the struc... 

Malic acid-containing polysaccharide produced by the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans of marine origin

This polysaccharide preparation, which was homogeneous in both ultracentrifugal and electrophoretic analyses, was composed of glucose and malic acid at a molar ratio of 1:1.

Polysaccharide production by a reduced pigmentation mutant of Aureobasidium pullulans NYS‐1

Aims: To isolate a reduced pigmentation mutant of Aureobasidium pullulans NYS‐1 and characterize its cellular pigmentation plus its polysaccharide and biomass production relative to carbon source.

It was found that the cells immobilized on the ECTEOLA-cellulose at pH 2.0 produced higher pullulan levels than those cells immobilizing at pH 3.0, which was not statistically significant.

The productivity of the immobilized cells increased during the second production cycle while its pullulan content decreased, and the level of cell leakage from the support remained unchanged for both production cycles.

Production and applications of pullulan

Influence of varying nitrogen sources on polysaccharide production by Aureobasidium pullulans in batch culture

SummaryPolysaccharide formation by Aureobasidium pullulans was affected by the nitrogen source in the medium, and its yield fell when excess ammonium ions were present, even under conditions which

Pullulan: Properties, Synthesis, and Applications

The physical, chemical, and biochemical properties of pullulan are reviewed and practical aspects such as laboratory- and industrial-scale production as well as food, industry, and medical applications ofPullulan and their derivatives are discussed.

Pullulan production from coconut by-products by Aureobasidium pullulans

The chemical structure of thepullulan synthesized from coconut by-products exhibited was similar when it was compared using FT-IR spectroscopy with that of pullulan available commercially.

Elevated polysaccharide production by mutants of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans

The dry weights of the mutant cells were found not to differ greatly from those of the parent cells whether corn syrup or sucrose served as the carbon source, and the pullulan content of the polysaccharide elaborated by the parent was higher than either mutant.
