The cell surface of most organisms is covered by carbohydrates linked to lipids or proteins. In gram-negative bacteria there are generally two kinds of carbohydrate molecules covering the cell surface; lipopolysaccharides (or occasionally lipooligosaccharides) and capsular polysaccharides. Whilst the capsular polysaccharides, when present, are very long and… CONTINUE READING
