Abstract

A polysaccharide of molecular mass at least 300000 Da was isolated from walls of NCIB 7581. Three sugars, -lactyl-3-amino-3,6-dideoxyhexose, -acetylglucosamine and glucose were present in equimolar proportions, and accounted for 90% of the carbon of the polysaccharide. The remainder of the polymer was an unidentified acidic molecule, with a hydrophobic nature.
