The serotype-specific capsular polysaccharide from two strains of Pasteurella haemolytica serotype T4 organisms was purified and characterized by chemical analysis and NMR spectroscopy. The polymer, a teichoic acid, has the backbone structure ----(2-glycerol-l)----(phosphate)----(6-alpha-D-galactose-1)---- and is partially O-acetylated on the C2 and C3… CONTINUE READING
