Abstract

The polysaccharide components of an encapsulated and a non-encapsulated strain of var. were compared. The main capsular component was a polysaccharide consisting of rhamnose, glucose and galactose. This polysaccharide resembles, chemically and serologicaly, one of the two polysaccharide components normally found in the cell wall of var. . Since the cell wall of the encapsulated strain lacks the rhamnose-containing polysaccharide it seems likely that the capsule represents polysaccharide which has failed to become attached to the cell wall mucopeptide.
