# Characterization of the cell surface glycolipid from Spirochaeta aurantia

• Published 2009 in Glycoconjugate Journal

#### Abstract

Spirochaeta aurantia is a free-living saprophytic spirochete that grows easily in simple laboratory media, and thus can be used as a model for the investigation of surface carbohydrate structures in spirochetae, which are normally not available in sufficient amounts. Freeze-substitution electron microscopy indicated the presence of a capsule-like material… (More)
