| Abstract|| |
Aim/Background: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is capable of utilizing heavy oil hydrocarbons as a sole carbon source. P. aeruginosa produce exopolysaccharide (EPS) in an inorganic medium in the presence of crude oil. Several environmental factors affect the majority of EPS production. Materials and Methods: Strain of P. aeruginosa were managed under various media (maintenance medium, inoculum, and basal media). Different heavy petroleum oil concentrations (5, 10, 20, and 30 ml/L) were used as solo carbon source to the basal medium. Various conditions of bacterial growth were monitored. The growth of cells was estimated by measuring the absorbance of the mixture of 1 ml of the basal medium diluted with 1 ml of distilled water at 600 nm spectrophotometrically. P. aeruginosa was grown aerobically in a production medium at 37°C and 150 rpm on a rotary shaker. The culture broth was centrifuged to separate the cells. The precipitated polysaccharide was separated by centrifugation and washed with ethanol, acetone, and ether, and then dried under reduced pressure oven at 45°C. The DPPH test was carried out as described by Burits and Bucar to monitor the free radical scavenging activities of the extracts. Results: The preferable culture conditions for EPS production were at 10 ml/L heavy oil, with 0.5 g/L NaNO3as best N sources at pH 6.0 after 5 days incubation. The net weight of purified EPS production was 0.5 g/L. Conclusion: The obtained polysaccharide showed antioxidant activity that possesses DPPH radical scavenging activity, with an EC50 =0.201.

| Introduction|| |
Raw petroleum is a standout among the essential vigorous assets on the planet. Both aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons are the major sources of carbon for micro-organisms in crude oil. Organic compounds include organic acids such as acetic, benzoic, butyric, formic, propanoic, and naphthenic acids reaching up to 100 mM produced from the biodegradation of crude oil. About 22 genera of microscopic organisms including Pseudomonas, Aeromonas, Bacillus, Flavobacterium, Corynebacterium, Micrococcus are known to consume oil hydrocarbons. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most dynamic hydrocarbon utilizer in raw petroleum. Past perceptions have distinguished the Pseudomonas class most effectively among hydrocarbon-degrading micro-organisms.,,P. aeruginosa can use natural oil, aliphatic, monoaromatic hydrocarbons and alcohols as the solo carbon source. P. aeruginosa is additionally ready to tolerate and develop in high fixations (up to half v/v) of unrefined petroleum. Micro-organisms produce exopolysaccharide (EPS) to perform various functions, for instance, biofilm arrangement resistance to hydrocarbons, cryoprotectants, shield against antimicrobials, collection and biofouling, and bioleaching of metals. Conversely, other bacterial EPSs possess unique properties that can launch a range of new commercial opportunities (e.g., bacterial cellulose or levan)., A few types of microscopic organisms of the genera Azotobacter and Pseudomonas produce an EPS that looks to some extent like that of algal production. Biofilm belongs to the bacterium community which adhere to the biotic and abiotic surface and embed in a polymeric matrix composed mainly of polysaccharides, proteins, and nucleic acids. As the creation of the alginate polymer finds a critical place in lung contaminations found in cystic fibrosis patients, the alginate generation of P. aeruginosa has been the subject of extreme investigation., Subsequently, the use of bacterial strains could be stretched out to the creation of alginate, as has been feasible for different polysaccharides of financial significance, for example, gellan, hyaluronic corrosive, and xanthan, which are acquired through bacterial maturation. Using antioxidants from microbial source has been as early as in the 1980s; however, the relationship between micro-organisms and antioxidants was established only in the beginning of this century. About nine genera of bacteria, including both Gram-positive and Gram-negative, were found to produce the compound with antioxidant activity. The maximum activity was found in the methanol fractions of three Pseudomonas species.
This work aims to produce EPSs by P. aeruginosa from the heavy crude oil hydrocarbon as a solo carbon source and investigate some environmental conditions for the optimization of EPSs and evaluating their antioxidant activity.
| Materials and Methods|| |
The crude oil was obtained from King Abdulaziz University, Faculty of Engineering, Chemical Engineering Department, and the strain of P. aeruginosa was obtained from Al-Hada Military Hospital-Microbiology Department, Saudi Arabia.
Maintenance medium (g/L)
10 g of meat extract, 10 g of peptone, 5 g of NaCl, and 20 g of agar were dissolved in 1 L, at pH 7. The slants were inoculated with bacterial strain and then incubated at 37°C for 24 h. The slants were then maintained at 0°C–4°C in refrigerator. All chemicals were obtained from Sigma Aldrich, UK.
Inoculum medium (g/L)
10 g of meat extract, 10 g of peptone, 5 g of NaCl were dissolved in 1 liter, at pH 7. The medium was portioned into 500 ml. Each Erlenmeyer flask contained 100 ml of the medium and sterilized. The flasks were inoculated with a slant of P. aeruginosa and incubated at 37°C on a rotary shaker (150 rpm) for 24 h.
Unless stated otherwise, the bacterium will be grown in shake flasks in a basal medium of the following composition (g/L).
1, KH2 PO4; 2, K2 HPO4; 1, NaNO3; 1.5, yeast extract; 0.21, MgSO47H2O. The basal medium will be supplemented with 10 ml heavy crude oil, tween 80 3 ml, and xylene 20 ml. The pH of the medium will be set at pH 7.0. The basal medium was portioned into 250 ml. Conical flasks contained 50 ml of the medium and sterilized. The sterile medium was inoculated at 10% (v/v) level and incubated at 37°C on a rotary shaker (150 rpm) for 48 h. The samples were removed at intervals for the determination of total sugar and growth of cells.
Different heavy petroleum oil concentrations (5, 10, 20, and 30 ml/L) were added to the basal medium as a solo carbon source.
Effect of various nitrogen sources on polysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The effect of different nitrogen sources on EPS production was studied by the addition of 0.5 g of (NH4)2 SO4, NaNO3, NH4 CL, and NH4 NO3 on basal medium. The control medium did not contain any nitrogen source. EPS were produced after 96 h of incubation at 37°C.
Effect of the best concentration of NaNO3 on polysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The effect of the best concentration of NaNO3 on EPS production was studied by the addition of 0.5, 1, 1.5, and 2 g/L of sodium nitrates NaNO3 on basal medium. Control medium did not contain any nitrogen source.
Effect of pH on polysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Initial pH of the medium that could support maximal EPS production by P. aeruginosa was worked out. The basal medium was adjusted from 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, to 9.0 with either 1 N NaOH or HCl.
Effect of different temperatures on polysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The basal medium was portioned into three Erlenmeyer flasks (250 ml), each containing the same volume of the fermentation medium (50 ml) and different temperatures (30°C, 37°C, and 45°C) to investigate the effect of temperature on polysaccharide production by P. aeruginosa.
Growth of cells was estimated by measuring the absorbance of the mixture of 1 ml of the basal medium diluted with 1 ml of distilled water at 600 nm spectrophotometrically. 100 ml of standard culture medium after fermentation was measured at 600 nm spectrophotometrically. The cultured medium was centrifuged; the precipitated cells were washed several times in petroleum ether (40°C–60°C) to remove the oil residue. The cells were transferred in a Petri dish More Details and then transferred to an oven at 100°C until constant weight. The Optical Density (OD) of the test medium was compared with that of the standard medium; the dry weight of cells was calculated. The blank contained no inoculated fermentation medium.
Determination of total sugars
Total hydrolysable carbohydrates were determined by phenol sulfuric acid method according to DuBois et al.
Isolation and purification of exopolysaccharide
P. aeruginosa were grown aerobically in a production medium at 37°C and 150 rpm on a rotary shaker. The culture broth was centrifuged to separate the cells. The cell-free supernatant was subjected to protein denaturation by the addition of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) at a final concentration of 10%. The supernatant was neutralized with NaOH (Freitas et al., 2009). Then, the solution was centrifuged, and the precipitate protein was discarded. The supernatant was dialyzed in a dialysis tube against running tap water for 48 h and then distilled water for 24 h. The dialyzed solution was concentrated under reduced pressure at 40°C. Ethanol was added to reach a concentration of ethanol:supernatant 3:1 v/v, and the mixture was left overnight in the refrigerator. The precipitated polysaccharide was separated by centrifugation and washed with ethanol, acetone, and ether and then dried in a reduced-pressure oven at 45°C.
The molecular weight of Molecular Weight of Polypeptides (MEPS) was determined on an Agilent 1100 HPLC system (Waldbronn, Germany) equipped with a Refractive Index Detector and FPl gel particle size (5 μm), 3 columns of pore type (100, 104, 105A°) on series, length 7.5 mm × 300 mm (1000–5000,000) were used for DMF solvent Styrogel HR-DMF, 3 μm (7.8 mm × 300 mm) Water Company Ireland. One column (5000–600,000) for water solvent (polyethylene oxide/glycol standard) PL aquagel-OH 7.5 mm and 30 um pore type 8 um particle size. PL aqua gel-OH 7.5 mm, 50 μm pore type, 8 μm particle size, in series Mw from 100 to 1250000 g/moL. The sample (0.01 g) was dissolved in 2 mL of the solvent and then filtered by siring filter 0.45 then the sample but in GPC device (Waldbronn, Germany). The polydispersity index was calculated from the Mw/Mn ratio.
Total phenolic content assay
The total phenolic contents were determined spectrophotometrically according to Folin–Ciocalteu's (FC) as indicated by Kähkönen et al. Gallic acid was used as standard unit for total phenolic content determination because it covers a wide spectrum of phenolic compounds.
Determination of free radical scavenging activities of the extracts
The 2,2-diphenyl-l-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) test was carried out as described by Burits and Bucar. 1 mL of fermented date seed extract at different concentration was mixed with 1 mL of DPPH reagent (0.002% [w/v]/methanol water solution). After an incubation period (30 min), the absorbance was measured at 517 nm. Ascorbic acid was used as positive control. The results were expressed in percentage of radical scavenging activity, calculated using the following formula:
A blank refers to the absorbance of the blank control, whereas a sample is the absorbance of the tested samples.
| Results and Discussion|| |
Effect of different heavy oil concentrations on exopolysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Different concentrations of heavy oil (5, 10, 20, and 30) were added to the fermentation medium. Results presented in [Figure 1] indicate that the growth of cells was found to be optimum at 5 mL heavy oil/L (0.14 g/L) and then the growth of cells decreases gradually as the concentration of oil increases. The output of total sugars (EPS) increased with increasing heavy oil concentrations reaching its maximum (75 mM) at 10 ml heavy oil/L. Numerous examinations show the influence of the type of carbon source on EPS production., Similar results were found by Sonawdekar and Gupte who cited that maximum amount of EPS was obtained by using 0.5% sodium nitrate at pH 7 in 48 h, in the presence of engine oil as a single carbon source. Sivakumar et al. observed that the hydrocarbon neem oil produced the maximum amount of EPS.

Effect of various nitrogen sources on the production of exopolysaccharide by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Among the nitrogen sources tested [Figure 2], NaNO3 supported maximum total sugars (236 mM), whereas (NH4)2 SO4 showed minimum EPS production (26 mM). On the other hand, NH4 CL produced the best bacterial cells (0.49 g/L) although our results indicated that NaNO3 produced maximum EPS. Conti et al. referred the maximum EPS production by P. fluorescens using NH4 Cl as nitrogen source.

Effect of different sodium nitrate (NaNO3) concentrations on the exopolysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Results presented in [Figure 3] indicate that at the concentration of 0.5 g/L from NaNO3, EPS output was increased to the maximum (28.17 mM). The further increase in NaNO3 leads to decrease in the EPS production. On the other hand, at concentration of 1 g/L, NaNO3 gave optimum cell growth at 0.306 g/L. The same results were reported by Sonawdekar and Gupte who cited that maximum amount of EPS using 0.5% sodium nitrate from engine oil as a solo carbon source.

Effect of yeast extraction concentration on polysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Different concentrations of yeast extract of 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, and 2 g/L were added to the fermentation medium. The results presented in [Figure 4] indicate that the bacterial cells increased gradually as the concentration of yeast extract increased. At 2 g/L yeast extract, optimum bacterial cell growth (0.16 g/L) were detected. The output of total sugars (EPS) increased with increasing yeast extract concentrations reaching its maximum (82.1 mM) at 1.5 g/L yeast extract. Tanaka et al. found that addition of natural nutrient, such, as yeast extract and meat extract was essential for polysaccharide formation by Pseudomonas sp. Raza et al. reported that P. polymyxa SQR-21 produced one type of EPS using yeast extract and galactose as the best N and C sources, respectively. Their EPS showed good superoxide scavenging and moderate inhibition of lipid peroxidation and reducing activities.

Effect of pH on exopolysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The results obtained [Figure 5] showed little increase in the final pH values of the fermentation medium. The bacterial cells were diminished at pH (5 and 9) to about 0.176 and 0.013 g/L, respectively. Optimum cell growth was obtained at pH 6 (0.27 g/L). Maximal EPS production (as total sugars) was also recorded at an initial pH of 6.0 (70.83 mM). At acidic pH, the total sugars (44.33 mM) were more than that found in alkaline pH. The initial pH of liquid culture is important as it may affect the cell growth, EPS production, and uptake of different nutrients. Similar results were reported by Sivakumar et al. who observed that the maximum EPS production was at pH 6.0. On the other hand, Bueno and Garcia-Cruz reported that the maximum EPS production by Pseudomonas sp. at pH 7.

Effect of temperature on polysaccharide production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The fermentation medium (50 ml) was incubated at different temperatures (30°C, 37°C, and 45°C). Results in [Figure 6] indicate that the bacterial cells were found to be optimum at 37°C (0.088 g/L) and then the growth of cells decreased gradually as the temperature increased. The output of total sugars (EPS) was at its maximum production at 30°C (67.2 mM). Vijayabaskar et al. and Abdul Razack referred that 37°C was the optimum temperature for EPS, which is not consistent with our study. Similar results were obtained by Gao et al., who observed that the optimum temperature parameter for the EPS production was 25°C.

Effect of different fermentation periods on the production of exopolysaccharide by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Results documented in [Figure 7] clearly testify that the microbial biomass approximately increased in the first 2 days late logarithmic phase and beginning of stationary phase (0.17 g/L). The bacterial mass remains stable after that and finally decreases to 0.12 g/L. Further, the results presented in [Figure 7] also suggest that the optimum EPS (total sugars) production output was found after 5 days (100.33 mM) and then the polysaccharide decreased to 79.5 mM after 6 days. Our results were in accordance with the results of a study in which the EPS was produced after 4 days. On the other hand, Raza et al. and Conti et al. produced EPS after 72 h and 50 h, respectively.

Purified Pseudomonas aeruginosa polysaccharide
The culture broth of P. aeruginosa was centrifuged to separate the cells. The supernatant was treated with trichloroacetic acid to separate the protein and then the supernatant was neutralized with NaOH. Then, the solution was centrifuged, and the precipitate protein was discarded. The supernatant was dialyzed, and the dialyzed solution was concentrated at a reduced pressure at 40°C. Ethanol was added to the mixture and was left overnight in a refrigerator. The precipitated polysaccharide was separated by centrifugation and washed with ethanol, acetone, and ether and then dried in a reduced-pressure oven at 45°C. The net weight of polysaccharide was 0.5 g/L.
Total phenolic content
The total phenolic contents were determined in purified EPS solution produced by P. aeruginosa that growing in culture medium containing heavy oil. It was found that the total phenol compounds 0.203 μg/150 μg total phenol compounds were recorded in EPS solution that were measured by FC reagent in terms of gallic acid equivalence.
DPPH radical scavenging activity
The in-vitro antioxidant activity of the isolated EPS was determined by DPPH free radical scavenging ability. DPPH is one of the compounds that has a proton-free radical with a characteristic absorption, which decreases significantly on exposure to proton radical scavengers. Furthermore, it is well accepted that the DPPH free radical scavenging activity by antioxidants is due to their hydrogen-donating ability. The findings of the present study showed that EPS isolated from P. aeruginosa had a noticeable DPPH free radical scavenging activity [Figure 8]. It was also observed that the DPPH scavenging activity increased in a dose-dependent manner (0–135 μg/mL). It was assumed that the isolated EPS somehow donates hydrogen ions to react with the DPPH radical. The greatest scavenging rate of P. aeruginosa EPS was 55%, which was lower than the 72% observed for Serratia ureilytica TKU013 and 77% for Paenibacillus sp. TKU023. The half-maximal effective concentration of P. aeruginosa EPS (IC50= 0.201) is shown in [Figure 8]. TKU032 EPS was a potent and natural antioxidant that could be used as an alternative to synthetic antioxidants.

| Conclusion|| |
The present work dealt with the production of EPS from P. aeruginosa and optimization of environmental parameters for its production. Our study reported that for the production of 0.5 g/L yield of purified EPS, 10 ml/L heavy oil and 0.5 g/L NaNO3(as best N source) are required at pH 6.0 after 5 days of incubation period. This polysaccharide showed antioxidant activity that possesses DPPH radical scavenging activity, with an EC50 =0.201.
