Structures and serology of the O-specific polysaccharides of bacteria of the genus Citrobacter
Languages of publication
The review presents the structures of the O-specific polysaccharides (O-antigens) of the lipopolysaccharides isolated from over 25 Citrobacter strains, which represent different species and serogroups. The correlation between O-antigen structure and immunospecificity as well as numerous cross-reactions between Citrobacter and other enterobacterial species are discussed.
