Abstract

The chemical composition of lipopolysaccharides isolated from respective Proteus vulgaris and P. mirabilis strains belonging to 49 different serotypes (Kauffmann and Perch classification) allowed us to divide the investigated LPS’s into 16 chemotypes. The major part of LPS’s is clustered in two chemotypes — IX and XV (4). The structure of the 0 specific part of LPS, isolated from P. vulgaris serotype 019 strain, from the chemotype IX, together with some serological data, is presented in this paper.
