Table 3 Monomer compositions of crude EPSs obtained from cultures of Ph. polycephalum and Phy. oblonga

From: Biological activities and chemical compositions of slime tracks and crude exopolysaccharides isolated from plasmodia of Physarum polycephalum and Physarella oblonga

Monomer composition (%w/w) POS POP PPS PPP
Galactose 15.65 14.09 19.43 9.47
Glucose 17.96 23.32 9.1 50.87
Rhamnose 66.37 62.58 71.46 39.65
  1. POS and POP are slime track and EPS samples from Phy. oblonga, whereas PPS and PPP are slime track and EPS samples from Ph. polycephalum
