On mild acid hydrolysis of lipolysaccharide from Shigella dysenteriae type 3 the O-specific polysaccharide (hapten) was obtained which appeared to be acidic branched hexosaminoglycan. The repeating unit of this polysaccharide represents a pentasaccharide composed of two D-galactose residues, N-acetyl-D-galactosamine, D-glucose and unidentified acidic component. On the basis of methylation analysis, periodate oxidation, partial acid hydrolysis and chromic anhydride oxidation it is concluded that… CONTINUE READING
