The O-specific polysaccharide (O-antigen) of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Proteus vulgaris O37 was studied by (1)H and (13)C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy before and after O-deacetylation and found to be structurally similar to that of P. vulgaris O46 studied earlier. The two polysaccharides have the same carbohydrate backbone and differ in the… CONTINUE READING
