Haemophilus ducreyi is a sexually transmitted pathogen that colonizes the genital epithelium in humans, causing genital ulcers or chancroid. Its surface lipooligosaccharides (LOSs) have been shown to play a role in ulcer formation and may also be important in cell adhesion and invasion of host tissue. Earlier we presented a preliminary structure of the major LOS from strain 35000 that suggested the presence of terminal lactosamine [Melaugh, W., Phillips, N.J., Campagnari, A.A., Karalus, R… CONTINUE READING
