A broad-host-range endosymbiont, Sinorhizobium sp. NGR234 is a component of several legume-symbiont model systems; however, there is little structural information on the cell surface glycoconjugates. NGR234 cells in free-living culture produce a major rough lipopolysaccharide (LPS, lacking O-chain) and a minor smooth LPS (containing O-chain), and the structure of the lipid A components was investigated by chemical analyses, mass spectrometry, and NMR spectroscopy of the underivatized lipids A… CONTINUE READING
