Abstract

SUMMARY: A particulate enzyme fraction from type VIII Pneumococcus obtained by centrifugation of disrupted organisms between 30,000 and 140,000 synthesized a non-reducing disaccharide from uridine diphosphoglucose (UDPG). The structure proposed for the material synthesized is gluco-pyranosyl-glucopyranoside, in which at least one of the linkages is of the β configuration. The reaction may be formulated as: UDPG + UDPG → glucopyranosyl-glucopyranoside. The reaction was not type-specific and was also found with particulate fractions from pneumococci of types II and III.
