Glycoconjugates are distributed on the cell surfaces of some small-sized treponemes and have been reported to be completely different from lipopolysaccharides. We separated a glycoconjugate fraction from Treponema medium ATCC 700293, a medium-sized oral spirochete, to assess its immunobiological activities and elucidate the chemical structure of its polysaccharide part using phenol/water extraction, hydrophobic chromatography, and gel filtration. The glycoconjugate showed negligible or weak… CONTINUE READING
