Abstract

The structure of the carbohydrate backbone of the lipopolysaccharide from Acinetobacter strain ATCC 17905 was studied. After deacylation of the lipopolysaccharide, a mixture of two compounds (ratio approximately 2:1) was isolated by high-performance anion-exchange chromatography, the structures of which were determined by NMR spectroscopy and electrospray-mass spectrometry as [STRUCUTRE IN TEXT] [Sug, 3-deoxy-D-manno-2-octulopyranosonic acid (Kdo) in oligosaccharide 1 (major portion) and D-glycero-D-talo-2-octulopyranosonic acid (Ko) in oligosaccharide 2 (minor portion)]. All monosaccharide residues also possess the D-configuration and are present in the pyranose form.
