Serologically characterized samples of enterobacterial common antigen (ECA) from Plesiomonas shigelloides, Salmonella montevideo and Shigella sonnei were investigated by chemical methods including methylation and NMR techniques. All showed the same sugar composition and contained a lipid moiety with palmitic acid as main fatty acid and with a phosphodiester group. Additional enzymatic studies, reported in the preceding paper, provided evidence that the lipid moiety is an L-glycerophosphatidyl… CONTINUE READING
