Some marine bacteria collected around deep-sea hydrothermal vents are able to produce, in laboratory conditions, complex and innovative exopolysaccharides. In a previous study, the mesophilic strain Alteromonas macleodii subsp. fijiensis biovar deepsane was collected on the East Pacific Rise at 2600 m depth. It was isolated from a polychaete annelid Alvinella pompejana and is able to synthesise and excrete the exopolysaccharide deepsane. Biological activities have been screened and some… CONTINUE READING
