Exclusion of high-molecular-weight maltosaccharides by lipopolysaccharide O-antigen of Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium.

Abstract

The barrier properties of lipopolysaccharide were studied by testing the influence of O-antigen on the binding of ligand to maltoporin in the outer membranes of Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium. Maltoporin (LamB protein) of Escherichia coli K-12 was capable of interacting with macromolecular starch polysaccharides, as was previously shown by the… (More)
