Abstract

Summary

Organ culture of rat trachea was used as an experimental model to examine the ability of lipo-oligosaccharide from to damage respiratory tract mucosal tissue. Lipo-oligosaccharide from two strains of produced a significant decrease in the ciliary activity of tracheal rings observed over a 3-5 day period. No loss of ciliary activity was observed with the lipid-free moiety of the lipooligosaccharide.
