Botryosphaeran, a water-soluble exopolysaccharide (EPS) produced by the ascomyceteous fungus, Botryosphaeria rhodina MAMB-05, consists of a linear backbone chain comprising (1[right arrow]3)-[beta]-D-glucopyranosyl groups to which are attached to the branched chains of (1[right arrow]6)-linked [beta]-glucosyl and diglucosyl (gentiobiose) residues [1].
