Phagocytosis of bacteria by macrophages: changing the carbohydrate of lipopolysaccharide alters interaction with complement and macrophages.

Abstract

Salmonella transductants and recombinants differing the O-antigenic side chain of their lipopolysaccharide are taken up at different rates by the murine macrophage-like cell line J774. Bacteria containing abequose, mannose, rhamnose, and galactose in O-antigenic side chain were taken up at the slowest rate; the one containing tyvelose instead of abequose… (More)
