Carbohydr Res. 2013 Nov 15:381:138-41. doi: 10.1016/j.carres.2013.08.016. Epub 2013 Aug 25.


The O-polysaccharide isolated by mild acid hydrolysis of the lipopolysaccharide of Pseudomonas mandelii CYar1 was studied by sugar analysis and 1D and 2D (1)H and (13)C NMR spectroscopies. The following structure of the O-polysaccharide was established:

Keywords: Bacterial polysaccharide structure; Lipopolysaccharide; O-Antigen; Pseudomonas mandelii; Yersiniose.
