The O antigens found in Salmonella enterica (Se) and Escherichia coli (Ec) show a great deal of diversity, and only three structures are known to be common to both genera. Two of them contain the 3,6-dideoxyheoxse colitose, not found in other serogroups of the two species. The first of these is common to Ec O111 and Se O:35 (sv Adelaide); the other is found in both Ec O55 and Se O:50 (sv Greenside). The genes specific for the synthesis of O antigen are generally located in the rfb gene cluster… CONTINUE READING
