 Synonyms & Historicals
Polysaccharides .
Glycans .
Fungal Polysaccharides .
Polysaccharides, Fungal .
Cell wall components constituting a polysaccharide core found in fungi. They may act as antigens or structural substrates. .
Polysaccharides, Bacterial .
Bacterial Polysaccharides .
Polysaccharides found in bacteria and in capsules thereof. .
Polysaccharide-Lyases .
Polysaccharide Lyases .
A group of carbon-oxygen lyases. These enzymes catalyze the breakage of a carbon-oxygen bond in polysaccharides leading to an unsaturated product and the elimination of an alcohol. EC 4.2.2. .
Lipopolysaccharides .
Lipoglycans .
Lipid-containing polysaccharides which are endotoxins and important group-specific antigens. They are often derived from the cell wall of gram-negative bacteria and induce immunoglobulin secretion. The lipopolysaccharide molecule consists of three parts: LIPID A, core polysaccharide, and O-specific chains (O ANTIGENS). When derived from Escherichia coli, lipopolysaccharides serve as polyclonal B-cell mitogens commonly used in laboratory immunology. (From Dorland, 28th ed) .
O Antigens .
O Antigen .
O Antigen, Bacterial .
O-Antigens .
O-Specific Polysaccharide .
Antigen, Bacterial O .
Antigen, O .
Antigens, O .
Bacterial O Antigen .
O Specific Polysaccharide .
O Specific Polysaccharides .
Polysaccharide, O-Specific .
Polysaccharides, O-Specific .
O-Specific Polysaccharides .
The lipopolysaccharide-protein somatic antigens, usually from gram-negative bacteria, important in the serological classification of enteric bacilli. The O-specific chains determine the specificity of the O antigens of a given serotype. O antigens are the immunodominant part of the lipopolysaccharide molecule in the intact bacterial cell. (From Singleton & Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed) .
Glycosaminoglycans .
Mucopolysaccharides .
Heteropolysaccharides which contain an N-acetylated hexosamine in a characteristic repeating disaccharide unit. The repeating structure of each disaccharide involves alternate 1,4- and 1,3-linkages consisting of either N-acetylglucosamine (see ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE) or N-acetylgalactosamine (see ACETYLGALACTOSAMINE). .
