The Mycobacterium smegmatis arabinogalactan polysaccharide has been isolated from the cell wall by saponification and extraction to remove lipids and subsequent solubilization by treatment with lysozyme. Analysis for neutral sugars demonstrated the presence of D-arabinose and D-galactose in a ratio of 3:1, respectively. Reductive cleavage of the fully… CONTINUE READING
