The synthesis of smooth lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in relation to mouse virulence and resistance to serum bactericidal activity in vitro and to rapid intravenous clearance in vivo was studied in Salmonella typhimurium by using a virulent [median lethal dose (LD(50)) = 10(2)], smooth, and genetically marked strain, a uridinediphosphogalactose epimerase… CONTINUE READING
