Antigenic phenol phase S-type lipopolysaccharides (LPS) isolated from Brucella abortus (B. abortus) strains 7 and Mustapha were observed to have 13C n.m.r. spectra which were almost identical to the one reported for the Brucella abortus 1119-3. The glycosyl content of the lipid A obtained from the LPS of strain 7 was found to be 2-acetamido-2-deoxyglucose only while strain Mustapha was found to contain both 2-acetamido-2-deoxyglucose and 2-acetamido-2-deoxygalactose. The fatty acid present in… CONTINUE READING
