Pseudoalteromonas sp. SM9913 is a psychrotolerant bacterium isolated from deep-sea sediment. The structural characterization and ecological roles of the exopolysaccharide (EPS) secreted by this strain were studied in this work. The yield of the EPS increased as the culture temperature decreased in the range 30-10 degrees C, and it reached 5.25 g l(-1) (dry weight) under optimal growth conditions (15 degrees C, 52 h). EPS fraction was purified and its structure was identified by the combination… CONTINUE READING
