    AnnotationCyanobacteria are a rich source of metabolites of a great biotechnological and industrial importance. In this screening study the exopolysaccharides (EPSs) produced by 25 cyanobacterial strains were characterized by yields, chemical composition (protein, carbohydrate, and uronic acid contents, monosaccharide composition, and polymer type) and proton NMR. Most of them were identified as glycoconjugates, i.e. glycoproteins or proteoglycans, in which heteropolysaccharides were composed of seven-to-ten monosaccharide units. At studied cyanobacterial species a significant variation of EPS yields (24–8085 mg/L), carbohydrate (9–67%) and protein (0–37.8%) contents was observed.
