Extracellular high-mol.-wt material was separated from liquid cultures of Staphylococcus epidermidis. This material contained protein c. 20% w/w and polysaccharide c. 80% w/w. The polysaccharide was isolated by gel and ion-exchange chromatography and contained glycerol phosphate, glucose, N-acetylglucosamine, and D-alanine. Cell-wall teichoic acid was isolated from strain RP-62A and had a similar composition.
