Lipoglycans were extracted from disrupted cells of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with hot phenol-water. Hydrophobic interaction chromatography on octyl-Sepharose of the crude extract separated nucleic acids and lipoglycans. The latter were retained on the column and fractionated on elution with a propanol gradient into six peaks primarily according to decreasing size of the hydrophilic head groups which dropped from 70 to 5 or 4 monosaccharide residues per molecule. The number of fatty acids per… CONTINUE READING
