Characterization of Haemophilus parainfluenzae strains with low-Mr or ladder-like lipopolysaccharides.

Abstract

Twenty-five Haemophilus parainfluenzae strains were characterized for lipopolysaccharide (LPS) profiles, outer membrane protein profiles, serum sensitivity, plasmid profiles and DNA homology. Seventeen strains produced low-Mr LPS that did not contain O-sidechains, while the remaining eight strains contained ladder-like LPS suggestive of O-repeated units. This is the first time in the genus Haemophilus that LPS with O-repeated groups has been described. The strains producing the different types of LPS could not be distinguished from each other in outer membrane protein profiles or the other characteristics examined.
