Previous work has described small molecular weight neutral polysaccharides from isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa that appear to be associated with the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and distributed across serologic barriers defined by antibody to the O side chain. We have isolated and characterized another of these structures obtained from culture supernatants of an immunotype 3 strain of P. aeruginosa. The isolated neutral polysaccharide has a tetrasaccharide repeat unit: (formula; see text) where… CONTINUE READING
