Structure of the extracellular polysaccharide produced by Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus 291
Review articleOpen access

AbstractThe lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus 291, when grown in skimmed milk, produced 80 mg/L exopolysaccharide with an average molecular mass of 1.4×103 kDa. Monosaccharide analysis, methylation analysis, MS, and 1D/2D NMR (1H and 13C) studies performed on the native polysaccharide, and on oligosaccharides obtained from a mild acid hydrolysate of the native polysaccharide, showed the polysaccharide to consist of branched pentasaccharide repeating units with the following structure:Download full-size image
