We reported previously that the high susceptibility of Moraxella catarrhalis to macrolide antibiotics and other hydrophobic antimicrobial agents was related to the hydrophobicity of the cell surface. Electrophoretic analysis of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) extracted from M. catarrhalis revealed a deep rough-type profile similar to that of an LPS Re type mutant… CONTINUE READING
