Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) were extracted from seven Bacteroides strains by three different techniques: the phenol-water (PW), phenol-chloroform-petroleum (PCP) and Triton-Mg2+ methods. The strains selected included two different B. fragilis strains, one of which was grown in two different media. Yields varied between the strains, growth media and extraction technique, but generally the highest yield by weight was from the PCP method and the lowest from the PW method. The PW method was selected… CONTINUE READING
