The specific capsular polysaccharides of Streptococcuspneumoniae types 19B and 19C (American types 58 and 59) were investigated by a combination of 1H, 13C, and 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and analytical methods based on mass spectrometry. The two polysaccharides were found to be high molecular weight polymers composed of L-rhamnose, 2-amino-2-deoxy-D-mannose, D-ribose, D-glucose, and phosphate. Homo- and heteronuclear chemical shift correlation techniques and nuclear Overhauser… CONTINUE READING
