Abstract

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was isolated and purified from ATCC 33238 by the phenol-water procedure and RNAase treatment. The sugar components of the LPS were rhamnose, mannose, glucose, heptose, 2-keto-3-deoxyoctonate (KDO) (3-deoxy---octulosonate) and glucosamine. The degraded polysaccharide prepared from LPS by mild acid hydrolysis was fractionated by Sephadex G-50 gel chromatography into three fractions: (1) a high-molecular-mass fraction, eluting just behind the void volume, consisting of a long chain of rhamnose (22 mols per 3 mols of heptose residue) with attached core oligosaccharide; (2) a core oligosaccharide containing heptose, glucose and KDO, substituted with a short side chain of rhamnose; (3) a low-molecular-mass fraction containing KDO and phosphate. The main fatty acids of the lipid A were C C3-OH-C and 3-OH-C. The biological activities of the LPS were similar to those of LPS in activation of the clotting enzyme of amoebocytes, the Schwartzman reaction and mitogenicity for murine lymphocytes, although all the biological activities of lipid A were lower than those of intact LPS.
