Lipopolysaccharides were extracted from freeze-dried cells of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 (polymyxin B susceptible), isolate A (polymyxin B resistant), and isolate A-reverted (polymyxin B intermediate resistance) by either the phenol-chloroform-petroleum ether or the modified phenol-water method. Isolate A and isolate A-reverted had drastic losses of 2-hydroxydodecanoic acid and significant decreases in 3-hydroxydecanoic acid. Concentrations of amide-linked 3-hydroxydecanoic acid were similar… CONTINUE READING
