The amounts of S- and R-glucans in the mycelium of Aspergillus giganteus mut. alba depend on light within the range of selected light intensities: 0 W.m-2; 3 W.m-2; 10.6 W.m-2 at 20% glucose concentration in the nutrient medium. This species synthesizes the highest amount of S-glucans at the light intensity 10.6 W.m-2, and that of R-glucans--at the intensity 3 W.m-2.
