Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation
Sugars identified include glucose, rhamnose, ribose, and glucosamine (amino sugar). 3.8% total amino sugar content determined.
In Bacillus cereus strain T, carbohydrates were determined using differential anthrone method, orcinol method, and aniline phthalic acid and ammoniacal silver nitrate reactions after descending paper chromatography.
