N‐Acetyl‐D‐mannosamine (ManNAc) and N‐acetyl‐D‐glucosamine (GlcNAc) are the essential precursors of N‐acetylneuraminic acid (NeuAc), the specific monomer of polysialic acid (PA), a bacterial pathogenic determinant. Escherichia coli K1 uses both amino sugars as carbon sources and uptake takes place through the mannose phosphotransferase system transporter, a phosphoenolpyruvate‐dependent phosphotransferase system that shows a broad range of specificity. Glucose, mannose, fructose, and… Expand
