In Salmonella minnesota lipopolysaccharide the lipid A backbone, a substituted diphosphorylated beta 1,6-linked D-glucosamine disaccharide molecule, carries approximately seven residues of fatty acids: one each of dodecanoic, hexadecanoic, D-3-hydroxytetradecanoic and D-3-O-(tetradecanoyl)-tetradecanoic acid in ester linkage and two of D-3-hydroxytetradecanoic acid in amide linkage. In the present study it is shown that treatment of the lipopolysaccharide with alkali at elevated temperature… CONTINUE READING
