Proteus mirabilis RMS 203 as a new representative of the O13 Proteus serogroup

Title variants
Languages of publication
The unique feature of some Proteus O-polysaccharides is occurrence of an amide of galacturonic acid with Nε-[(S/R)-1-Carboxyethyl]-l-lysine, GalA6(2S,8S/R-AlaLys). The results of the serological studies presented here, with reference to known O-antigens structures suggest that GalA6(2S,8S/R-AlaLys) or 2S,8R-AlaLys contribute to cross-reactions of O13 Proteus antisera, and Proteeae LPSs. It was also revealed that the Proteus mirabilis RMS 203 strain can be classified into the O13 serogroup, represented so far by two strains: Proteus mirabilis 26/57 and Proteus vulgaris 8344. The O13 LPS is a serologically important antigen with a fragment common to LPSs of different species in the Proteeae tribe.
