Structure of a water-insoluble D-glucan isolated from a streptococcal organism.


The structure of the extracellular polysaccharide (water-insoluble D-glucan) from an anaerobic, Gram-positive coccus organism (Streptococcus) has been investigated. Acid hydrolysis of the methylated glucan yielded 2,3,4,6-tetra-, 2,3,4-tri-, 2,4,6-tri, and 2,4-di-O-methyl-D-glucose in the molar ratios of 1.13:3.99:1.00:1.02, indicating that the D-glucan has… (More)
