Abstract

Summary: The low- lipopolysaccharide produced by is composed of 6--methyl--glucose (11 mol), -glucose (8 mol) and 3--methyl--glucose (1 mol). Glyceric acid was also found as a constituent. Methylation and periodate oxidation analyses suggested that the backbone was formed by (1.d4)-linked glucose and -methylglucose residues. Glucose (1 mol) and 6--methylglucose (1 mol) served as branching points. Acetic acid was the major acyl substituent esterifying glucose residues. The lipopolysaccharide was isolated from the cytoplasmic fraction. Several other strains were examined; all possessed the same lipopolysaccharide in their extracts.
