Summary: A comparative study was made of the quantitative sugar composition of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) isolated from (O1 and non O1 groups), and The amino sugars 4-amino-4,6-dideoxy--mannose (perosamine) and 2-amino-2,6-dideoxy->-glucose (quinovosamine) were present exclusively in LPS isolated from S-form O1 group of regardless of serotype (i.e. Ogawa or Inaba) and biotype (i.e. classical or eltor). Classical O1 group was distinguishable from eltor O1 group on the basis of the fructose content of the LPS: >3% and ≤1%, respectively. Distinct differences in the sugar composition of LPS were observed between and and
