A new polymer of 8,9-Di-O-Glucosylated 2-keto-3-deoxy-D-glycero-D-galacto-nonulosonic acid from a cell wall of Brevibacterium casei ACM Ac-2114T
ABSTRACT A polysaccharide containing the residues of 2-keto-3-deoxy-D-glycero-D-galacto-nonulosonic acid (Kdn) was found in the cell wall of the Brevibacterium casei strain ACM Ac-2114T. The polymer structure was elucidated by analyzing one-dimensional spectra of 1H and 13C NMR and bidimentional experiments 1H/1H-COSY, TOCSY, 1H/13C-gHSQC, and 1H/13C-gHMBC. The polymer is built up of the 2 → 4-linked Kdn residues substituted by β-D-Glcp residues at 8- and 9-hydroxyls; such a polymer with disubstituted Kdn residues was found for the first time. A glycosylated
teichoic acid of the 1,3-poly(glycerolphosphate) type was also identified among other anionic polymers of cell wall.

ABSTRACT: The Subcommittee on the Taxonomy of the Suborder Micrococcineae of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes has agreed on minimal standards for describing new genera and species of the suborder Micrococcineae. The minimal standards are intended to provide bacteriologists involved in the taxonomy of members of the suborder Micrococcineae with a set of essential requirements for the description of new taxa. In addition to sequence data comparisons of 16S rRNA genes or other appropriate conservative genes, phenotypic and genotypic criteria are compiled which are considered essential for the comprehensive characterization of new members of the suborder Micrococcineae. Additional features are recommended for the characterization and differentiation of genera and species with validly published names.International journal of systematic and evolutionary microbiology 07/2009; 59(Pt 7):1823-49. · 2.11 Impact Factor
