Abstract

SUMMARY: A lipopolysaccharide was isolated from group B by phenol/water extraction and purified by differential ultracentrifugation. This preparation exhibited endotoxic properties as shown by the limulus-lysate assay. Mild acid hydrolysis of the lipopolysaccharide yielded a lipid A fraction and a polysaccharide fraction. The lipid A fraction contained fatty acids, phosphorus and glucosamine. Analysis of the polysaccharide fraction revealed the presence of glucose, galactose, glucosamine, 2-keto-3-deoxyoctonic acid and phosphorus. There was no heptose.
