Aphanocapsa halophytia MN-11 isolated from a hypersaline environment was found to produce large quantities of exopolysaccharide. We describe here production of exopolysaccharide and the characterization of its properties. The effects of medium composition, particularly NaCl concentration, were tested. Maximum exopolysaccharide production was obtained with nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations in the medium exceeding 100 and 40 mg · L-1 respectively. In addition, when 30 g · L-1 NaCl was added… CONTINUE READING
