A safer alternative to animal tissue extraction or chemical synthesis of biomedically relevant polymers is the development of biotech processes that exploit capsular/extracellular polysaccharide-producing microorganisms. This review provides an overview on recent advances in the development of molecular tools and fermentation technologies that lead to a better understanding of the metabolic mechanisms and required process conditions for microbial production of four glucuronic acid-based polymers (HA, CS, heparin, alginate).
