Abstract

The molecular weight of exo-biopolymer obtained from a submerged culture of Cordyceps sinensis 16 consisted of a main unit and a subunit of 126 and 68 kDa, respectively. The optimal medium for the production of mycelia and exo-biopolymer was determined to be molasses containing 2% sucrose, 0.9% yeast extract, 0.3% K 2HPO 4, and 0.4% CaCl 2. Using optimized medium, maximum productions of mycelia and exo-biopolymer in shake-flask culture were 54.0 g/L and 28.4 g/L, respectively. This study suggests that large-scale production of mycelia and exo-biopolymer by C. sinensis 16 is possible in submerged culture.
