Structures of the capsular and O-chain polysaccharides of Vibrio ordalii serotype O:2, the causative agent of vibriosis in salmonid fish, were determined by high-field NMR techniques, mass spectrometric methods and partial hydrolysis. Both polymers were shown to be composed of linear tetrasaccharide repeating units, having the structure: carbohydrate sequence [see text].
