L-2-Hydroxytetradecanoic acid was recognized as a characteristic, although minor, constituent of the lipid A component of Salmonella lipopolysaccharides. The 2-hydroxy fatty acid was present in lipid A as an ester, probably bound to the hydroxyl group of some D-3-hydroxytetradecanoic acid residues. A survey of enterobacterial lipopolysaccharides showed that L-2-hydroxytetradecanoid acid was also present in Klebsiella and Serratia strains. It was absent, however, from lipopolysaccharides of… CONTINUE READING
