Abstract

SUMMARY: A survey of the walls of over 80 bacterial species has been carried out using chromatographic and colorimetric techniques to demonstrate the presence of 2-keto-3-deoxy-octonic acid (KDO) and or sialic acid. In most Gram-negative bacteria KDO but not sialic acid was found in the wall, whereas the walls of Gram-positive bacteria contained neither compound.
