The chemical composition of the lipopolyacarideof Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

1. Lipopolysaccharide was isolated from both cell walls and acetone-dried whole cells of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (N.C.T.C. 1999). 2. Closely similar products are obtained, although that from whole cells cannot be completely freed from small amounts (2-7%) of residual nucleic acids. 3. The lipid moiety (23-33%) has a similar amino sugar backbone to that of… CONTINUE READING
