Lipopolysaccharides were isolated from Cifrobacfer freundii ATCC 8090 by 44% aqueous-phenol fractionation. The lipopolysaccharides were isolated from the phenol phase and phenol-water interphase fractions. Acid hydrolysis yielded glucosamine and a 3-amino sugar identified as 3amino-3,6-dideoxyglucose by comparison with authentic 3-amino-3,6-dideoxyhexoses… CONTINUE READING
