Predicted Configurations of Oligosaccharide Extensions in the Lipooligosaccharide of Non-Typeable Haemophilus influenzae.

Journal of clinical microbiology.

Lipooligosaccharide configurations were predicted in non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae isolates based on the presence of seven oligosaccharide-extension initiating genes (or alleles). Predicted configurations with 2-3 oligosaccharide extensions were more prevalent among middle ear than throat strains. In addition, strains with these configurations averaged higher levels of serum resistance than strains with other configurations.
