NameLPS outer core, E. coli type
DescriptionThe LPS outer core of E. coli and related species contains a set of glucosamine and galactose sugar residues positioned between the inner core heptose residues and the O-antigen. The O-antigen is attached to the outer core via the terminal glucosamine residue. The precise structure of the outer core varies by serovar (strain). The genes for the outer core are often observed interspersed with the more highly conserved and more easily identifiable genes for the inner core.
