The lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was isolated from three strains of Salmonella typhimurium, a "smooth" strain, STM 7, the Ra mutant, TV 119, and the Re mutant, SL 1102. The effect of depletion of divalent cations on structure and the effect of deoxycholate on hydrodynamic behavior were studied. The results confirmed previous work by others that divalent cations and hydrophobic forces are important factors influencing LPS size and morphology. The binding of deoxycholate to LPS was measured.
