Abstract:

Mycelial growth and exopolysaccharide production of Fomitopsis feei was studied in common production medium by changing different physiological parameters such as carbon, nitrogen sources, inoculum size, incubation time, pH, temperature, agitation. Glucose, ammonium sulphate, 6mm of inoculum, 8th and 14th days of incubation, pH 3, 30°C temperature and 150 rpm agitation were the best for the production of mycelium. Among the carbon and nitrogen sources tested glucose and malt extract were supported the high production of exopolysaccharides for both the sources respectively. They were further studied in different concentrations. Six mm of inoculum, 7 and 14 days of incubation, pH 6, 30°C temperature, 150 rpm agitation supported the maximum production of exopolysaccharide among the tested.


Keywords: Fomitopsis feei, Physiological studies, Common production medium, Optimization, Mycelial growth, Exopolysaccharide.
