Submerged cultures of two entomogenous fungi Isaria sinclairii and I. tenuipes have been optimized for polysaccharides production and their biological activities have been evaluated under present studies with using one- factor-at-a-time method. Combination of various factors influenced the higher polysaccharides production in both of the fungi. Polysaccharides production was influenced by different carbon, nitrogen and mineral sources. In vitro evaluation of EPS and IPS of both species showed significant antioxidant activities and high inhibition rate of peroxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
