Abstract

The A2 substance, a structural component of the cell wall of alkalophilic strain C-125, has an of 21000 and is composed mainly of glucuronic acid and glutamic acid. Hydrazinolysis of the A2 substance yielded homoglucuronate with an estimated of 4800. The of polyglutamate previously prepared from the A2 substance by deglycosylation was estimated to be 14000. It is therefore suggested that the A2 substance is composed of the two polymers, polyglutamate and polyglucuronate, and the name ‘teichuronopeptide’ is proposed for this complex.
