Role of Lipo-Oligosaccharides and Lipopolysaccharides in Bacterial Adherence

M Jacques. Trends Microbiol.

Abstract

Lipo-oligosaccharides (LOS) and lipopolysaccharides (LPS) are major constituents of the outer membrane, and major antigenic and toxic components of Gram-negative bacteria. Although many diverse biological activities have been associated with LPS/LOS, their role in adherence to host cells has been recognized only recently.
