Reexamination of the presence and linkage of 3-hydroxybutyryl substituents in the acidic capsular polysaccharide of Rhizobium trifolii 0403.

By R I Hollingsworth, F B Dazzo and A J Mort


We resolved previous conflicting results concerning the presence of 3-hydroxybutyryl substituents on the extracellular acidic polysaccharide from Rhizobium trifolii 0403. These substituents were indeed present in the polysaccharide and in the oligosaccharide fragments obtained by hydrogen fluoride solvolysis of the extracellular and capsular polysaccharides of the bacteria grown on plates. The 3-hydroxybutyrate substituent could be removed from the polysaccharide by 10 mM sodium deuteroxide without evidence of elimination, indicating that this substituent was ester linked
