Lipopolysaccharide structure and serum sensitivity of non-serogroupable Neisseria meningitidis.

Abstract

Bactericidal activities of normal human serum for non-serogroupable strains of Neisseria meningitidis were determined. In similar experiments with isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae from localized infections, strains with group I lipopolysaccharide (LPS) were uniformly serum resistant and those with group II were serum sensitive. We found no similar… (More)
