Isolation Purification of Glycoconjugates

The outer leaflet of the outer membrane of the Gram-negative bacterial cell envelope is built of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) as well as capsular polysaccharides (CPS), and peptidoglycan (PG). In addition bacteria produce bacterial extracellular polysaccharides (exopolysacchride, EPS). A major component of gram- positive cell wall is peptidoglycan, capsular polysaccharides and wall teichoic and lipoteichoic acids (WTA/LTA).

CCRC Analytical laboratory has the capability to isolate and purify any microbial cell surface glycoconjugates prior to their detailed structural analysis. For a your project or particular polysaccharide of interest please contact Dr. ParastooAzadi at azadi@uga.edu .
