Extracellular and capsular polysaccharides (EPSs and CPSs) are produced by a wide range of bacteria, including important pathogens of humans, livestock, and plants. These polymers are major surface antigens and serve a variety of roles in virulence, depending on the biology of the producing organism. In addition to their importance in disease, some EPSs also have industrial applications as gelling and emulsifying agents. An understanding of the processes involved in the synthesis and regulation… CONTINUE READING
