Manno-oligosaccharides (DP 2 to greater than 15) were released by mild acid hydrolysis from the phosphopeptidomannan of a Candida albicans strain of A serotype (VW-32). Manno-oligosaccharides ranging from biose to heptaose were obtained in appreciable amount. Structural investigation of these oligosaccharides showed them to be of the beta-1,2-linked series. The occurrence of such compounds has already been reported in other strains of Candida albicans. We here report the assignment of the structural reporter groups of each of them, and general rules applicable for the 1H-NMR spectrum analysis of linear manno-oligosaccharide of general structure: Man(beta 1-2) [Man(beta 1-2)]nMan.
