The polymannan O-antigenic polysaccharides (O-PSs) of Escherichia coli O8 and O9a are synthesized via an ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter-dependent pathway. The group 2 capsular polysaccharides of E. coli serve as prototypes for polysaccharide synthesis and export via this pathway. Here, we show that there are some fundamental differences between the… CONTINUE READING
