The pentasaccharide hapten of the dominant glycopeptidolipid antigen of serovariant 19 of the Mycobacterium avium complex is noteworthy because of the uniqueness of its distal glycobiose, the presumed antigen determinant, which contains a 3,4-di-O-methyl glucuronic acid and a novel branched sugar. The detailed structure of the entire pentasaccharide has been established by high field 1H and 13C NMR, fast atom bombardment/mass spectrometry, and various specific degradations as 3,4-di-O-Me-beta-D… CONTINUE READING
