CD Biosynsis is committed to improving the yield and shortening the production cycle of xanthan gum by selecting the best strains, optimizing fermentation media and fermentation conditions, and regulating the signaling molecules in the synthesis phase of xanthan gum.
Xanthan gum is an extracellular polysaccharide produced by Xanthomonas spp. and formed by the polymerization of repeating structural units. Xanthan gum has been widely used in more than 20 fields such as food, agriculture, and medicine due to its superior fluidity and stability. The synthetic pathway of xanthan gum has now been elucidated. However, the biosynthesis of xanthan gum is influenced by several factors, among which the strain issue, fermentation process, and post-treatment process greatly affect the quality of xanthan gum. Therefore, based on the synthetic biology platform, it is important to realize the modification and construction of high-yielding strains of xanthan gum to improve the ability of industrial fermentation to produce xanthan gum.

The process of producing xanthan gum using glucose as a substrate consists of three main stages, namely the synthesis of sugar-phosphate, the synthesis of ribulose diphosphate, a ribose precursor, and the synthetic assembly and secretion of xanthan gum pentasaccharide repeat units. Based on our understanding of the biosynthesis mechanism of xanthan gum, we provide regulation services for the different stages to help our customers improve the yield of xanthan gum. The specific services are as follows.
|Gluconate phosphate dehydratase||Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase||Glucose-6-phosphate isomerase||UDP-glucose dehydrogenase|
The medium for the industrial production of xanthan gum generally contains trace elements as well as massive elements. Glucose and sucrose are the most commonly used carbon sources. We can help our customers to further optimize the fermentation system for xanthan gum production by determining the optimal production medium, temperature, pH, oxygenation, etc., based on the selected high-yielding strains of xanthan gum.
CD Biosynsis can develop tailored tools and customized approaches to harness the power of synthetic biology to drive xanthan gum production and meet the needs of customers in a variety of industries.
CD Biosynsis provides the most comprehensive and efficient solutions for synthetic biology workflows. We are committed to helping our customers solve all problems encountered in xanthan gum production to advance their applications in a wide range of fields. Each of our deliverables will undergo a rigorous quality inspection test to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results.
