O-specific polysaccharide (O-antigen) of the lipopolysaccharide of Proteus penneri 20 was studied using sugar analysis along with various one- and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy techniques. The following structure of the polysaccharide was established: [formula: see text] It has the same carbohydrate backbone structure as that described earlier for P… CONTINUE READING
