Abstract

Lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) were isolated from ATCC 10953 and ATCC 25286 by the hot phenol/water procedure. LPS was composed of 16% (w/w) carbohydrate, 10% (w/w) hexosamine and 40% (w/w) fatty acid, while LPS was composed of 26% (w/w) carbohydrate, 12% (w/w) hexosamine and 28% (w/w) fatty acid. These LPS preparations induced mitogenic responses in spleen cells of BALB/c, BALB/c (nu/nu) and C3H/HeN mice, and these responses were suppressed by the addition of polymyxin B. The preparations also induced the polyclonal responses of C3H/HeN spleen cells. In addition, enhanced glucose utilization and interleukin-1 production by murine peritoneal macrophages were demonstrated. Neither spleen cells nor macrophages from the ‘LPS-nonresponsive’ C3H/HeJ mouse were activated by LPSs from the species.
