From: Cytotoxicity activities and chemical characteristics of exopolysaccharides and intracellular polysaccharides of Physarum polycephalum microplasmodia

Sample Total carbohydrate content (%) Total protein content (%) Total sulfate group content (%) Total percentages
Crude EPS 44.26a ± 0.70 3.26c ± 0.33 2.04 ± 0.02 49.56
Partially purified EPS 56.61a ± 5.73 1.16b ± 0.20 ND 57.77
Crude IPS 63.38ab ± 0.60 2.71c ± 0.39 0.14 ± 0.02 66.23
Partially purified IPS 80.40b ± 14.61 0.57a ± 0.27 ND 80.97
  1. ND not detected; Different letters (a, b, c, d) imply significant differences (p < 0.05); Total percentages: were calculated by adding together the contents of carbohydrate, protein, and sulfate (if any) detected in each sample
