Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation
Protein is associated with carbohydrate, and the carbohydrate is composed of sugars associated with the serotype b O-PS. The A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b O-PS is a trisaccharide-repeating unit composed of D-Fuc, L-Rha, and D-GalNAc residues.Rha and Fuc were the main sugars identiļ¬ed in the analysis of the LPS isolated from the serotype b.
