Surface-active biopolymers from marine bacteria for potential biotechnological applications

Authors

Karina Sałek and Tony Gutierrez

Abstract

Surface-active agents are amphiphilic chemicals that are used in almost every sector of modern industry, the bulk of which are produced by organo-chemical synthesis. Those produced from biological sources (biosurfactants and bioemulsifiers), however, have gained increasing interest in recent years due to their wide […]

Role of Bacterial Exopolysaccharides (EPS) in the Fate of the Oil Released during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

Authors

Tony Gutierrez, David Berry, Tingting Yang, Sara Mishamandani, Luke McKay, Andreas Teske, Michael D. Aitken

Abstract

Halomonas species are recognized for producing exopolysaccharides (EPS) exhibiting amphiphilic properties that allow these macromolecules to interface with hydrophobic substrates, such as hydrocarbons. There remains a paucity of knowledge, however, on the potential of […]

Metal binding properties of the EPS produced by Halomonas sp. TG39 and its potential in enhancing trace element bioavailability to eukaryotic phytoplankton

Authors

Tony Gutierrez, Dondra V. Biller, Tracy Shimmield, David H. Green

Abstract

An emergent property of exopolysaccharides (EPS) produced by marine bacteria is their net negative charge, predominantly conferred by their high uronic acids content. Here, we investigated the EPS produced by an algal-associated marine bacterium, Halomonas sp. strain TG39, for […]
