- Mild acid degradation of the lipopolysaccharide of Yersinia kristensenii C-134 afforded a glycerol teichoic acid-like O-polysaccharide, which was studied by sugar analysis, O-deacetylation and dephosphorylation along with 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy. The following structure of the O-polysaccharide was established:This structure is related to those of other Y. kristensenii O-polysaccharides studied earlier. The O-antigen gene cluster of Y. kristensenii С-134 was analyzed and found to be consistent with the O-polysaccharide structure established.
