A lipopolysaccharide (LPS) has been isolated by phenol-water extraction from the cells of the blue-green algaMastigocladus laminosus. It has been shown that the LPS contains polysaccharide and lipid components. The polysaccharide component includes a rhamnan fragment constructed of β-1,3- and, possibly, -1,2-bound L-rhamnose residues. The lipid component is constructed of glucosamine, glucose, and fatty acid residues, among which palmitic acid predominates.
