Pythium aphanidermatum: culture, cell-wall composition, and isolation and structure of antitumour storage and solubilised cell-wall(1 → 3),(1 → 6)-β-d-glucans

Blaschek, W. ; Käsbauer, J. ; Kraus, J. ; Franz, Gerhard


Under optimal conditions for the culture of the fungus Phytium aphanidermatum, no polysaccharides were excreted into the medium. The mycelium contained up to 38% of a slightly branched, storage (1 → 3),(1 → 6)-β-d-glucan with a MW of 20 000. The cell=wall polysaccharides of the mycelium comprised 18% of cellulose and 82% of (1 → 3),(1 → 6)-β-d-glucans. Of the non-cellulosic glucans, ∼ 33% could ...
