Characterization, the Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Activity of Exopolysaccharide Isolated from Poultry Origin Lactobacilli

The natural antioxidant agent is urgently needed to prevent the negative effects of newly generated free radicals and chronic disorders. Recently, the microbial exopolysaccharide (EPS) is currently used as a potential biopolymer due to its unique biological characteristics. In this study, the biological potential was carried out on the EPSs produced by Lactobacillus reuteri SHA101 (EPS-lr) and Lactobacillus vaginalis SHA110 (EPS-lvg) isolated from gut cecum samples of healthy poultry birds (hen). As results, the EPS-lr and EPS-lvg showed the emulsifying activity of 37.8 ± 1.6% and 27.8 ± 0.5% after the 360 h, respectively. The scanning electron microscopy analysis of EPS-lr and EPS-lvg demonstrated a smooth surface with a compact structure. The both EPSs exhibited strong antibacterial activity against E. coli and Salmonella typhimurium in vitro. In additions, at 4 mg/mL concentration, the EPS-lr and EPS-lvg samples showed potent antioxidant activity regarding hydroxyl radical DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) radical, superoxide anion radical and reducing power at OD700 nm. Furthermore, the EPS-lr and EPS-lvg (600 μg/mL) possessed antitumor activity against colon cancer (Caco-2) cell after 72 h. The results suggested that these EPSs would have great potential in the application of antitumor and antioxidant foods, biomedicine, and pharmaceutics.
