An amino acid was released from the O-specific polysaccharide of Proteus mirabilis O13 by acid hydrolysis and identified as N(epsilon)-[(R)-1-carboxyethyl]-L-lysine by comparison with the authentic sample. An amide of this amino acid with D-galacturonic acid was isolated from the polysaccharide by solvolysis with anhydrous trifluoromethanesulfonic (triflic)(More)
A highly phosphorylated O-polysaccharide was obtained by mild acid degradation of the lipopolysaccharide of Proteus mirabilis O41 followed by GPC. The initial and dephosphorylated polysaccharides and phosphorylated products from two sequential Smith degradations were studied by (1)H, (13)C and (31)P NMR spectroscopy and ESI-MS. The O-polysaccharide was(More)
The following structure of the O-specific polysaccharide (OPS) of Proteus vulgaris O45 lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was established using 1H- and 13C-NMR spectroscopy, including two-dimensional NOESY and H-detected 1H, 13C heteronuclear multiple-quantum coherence ( HMQC) experiments: [structure: see text text] Immunochemical studies, using rabbit polyclonal(More)
The structure of lipid A-core region of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from Klebsiella pneumoniae serotype O3 was determined using NMR, MS and chemical analysis of the oligosaccharides, obtained by mild acid hydrolysis, alkaline deacylation, and deamination of the LPS: [carbohydrate structure see text] where P is H or alpha-Hep; J is H or beta-GalA; R is H or(More)
The following structure of the lipid A-core region of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from Proteus vulgaris serotype O25 was determined by using NMR and chemical analysis of the core oligosaccharide, obtained by mild acid hydrolysis of LPS, of the products of alkaline deacylation of the LPS, and of the products of LPS deamination: [structure: see text](More)
The O-polysaccharide (O-antigen) of Providencia alcalifaciens O21 was obtained by mild acid degradation of the lipopolysaccharide and studied by chemical methods and NMR spectroscopy. It was found that the polysaccharide is built up of branched pentasaccharide repeating units with a terminal residue of 3-formamido-3,6-dideoxy-D-galactose (D-Fuc3NFo) and has(More)
Structures of the O-specific polysaccharide chains of lipopolysaccharides from Proteus group OX strains (serogroups O1-O3) used as antigens in Weil-Felix test for diagnosis of rickettsiosis, were established. From them, the acid-labile polysaccharide of Proteus vulgaris OX19 (O1) is built up of the following branched pentasaccharide repeating units(More)
