Abstract

In this study, polysaccharide-producing bacteria were isolated from slimes collected from two Finnish and one Spanish paper mill and the exopolysaccharides (EPSs) produced by 18 isolates were characterised. Most of the isolates, selected on the bases of slimy colony morphology, were members of the family Enterobacteriaceae most frequently belonging to the genera Enterobacter and Klebsiella including Raoultella. All of the EPSs analysed showed the presence of charged groups in the form of uronic acid or pyruvate revealing the polyanionic nature of these polysaccharides. Further results of the carbohydrate analysis showed that the EPS produced by nine of the enterobacteria was colanic acid.
