Different inoculum volume (2-10%) were tested under pre-optimized conditions and the significantly (p<0.05) highest amount of exopolysaccharide
(3.12 g/L) was produced at 6% volume of inoculum (Fig.
Bacteria residing in biofilm mode are surrounded by a layer of exopolysaccharides
that functions as a protective sheath against environmental stress and host defense, leading to increased resistance to antimicrobials [48, 54].
(called 'cordoncillo' in Mexico and 'falso-jaborandi' in Brazil) harbors a diversity of endophytes (Orlandelli, Alberto, Rubin Filho, & Pamphile, 2012a), which include isolates that are sources of antimicrobial metabolites (Orlandelli, Alberto, Almeida, Azevedo, & Pamphile, 2012b) and exopolysaccharides
(Orlandelli, Vasconcelos, Azevedo, Corradi da Silva, & Pamphile, 2016).

In addition, virulent parameters of matured biofilm such as attachment force, thickness, exopolysaccharide
production, and morphogenesis of fungal cells were dramatically altered by SRM-S-8 .
