Exoglycans of Yersina pseudotuberculosis

  • Yu. S. Ovodov
  • O. D. Bondarenko


1. From a culture medium of strain 12 ofYersinia pseudotuberculosis of subtype IB a mixture of exoglycans has been isolated which consists of acidic heteropolysaccharides bound ionically to a protein component.

2. The yield and monosaccharide composition of the exoglycans produced depend on the conditions of growth and the form of the colonies.

3. The exoglycans of the local strain No. 12 and of a standard strain (No. 159) ofY. pseudotuberculosis of subtype IB contain monosaccharides (galactose, glucose, mannose, xylose, arabinose, fucose, glucuronic acid, glucosamine) and differ only by the ratio of the monosaccharide residues.
