Description

characterization, antioxidant and immunomodulatory potential of exopolysaccharide (EPS) produced by wild and mutant Weissella confusa. Wild Weissella confusa (WWCEPS) produced the highest EPS compare to the mutant strain. Eight (8) monosaccharides were present in the EPS. Galactose had the highest composition (34.60196 mg/100g and 33.47168 mg/100g EPS) in WWCEPS and mutant Weissella confusa EPS (MWCEPS). WWC and MWC EPS had antioxidant capacity. WWCEPS had the highest DPPH capacity, total antioxidant activity, hydrogen peroxide and reducing power activity (71%, 1.88%, 86.7% and 1.85%). Wild and mutant Weissella confusa EPS had immunomodulatory activity on the treated mice.
