The O-specific polysaccharide obtained from the lipopolysaccharide of Shigella dysenteriae type 1 (Shigella shiga) by mild acid hydrolysis followed by fractionation on Sephadex G-50 was found to be identical to that desribed by Morgan's group and was composed of L-rhamnose, D-galactose and N-acetyl-D-glycosamine in a ratio 2:1:1. On the basis of methylation… CONTINUE READING
