The complete structure for the core region of Campylobacter jejuni serotype O:2 lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was assigned through studies on derivatives of the liberated oligosaccharide (OS 2) and the intact LPS. Structure determinations were performed using H-1-NMR spectroscopy, methylation studies supported by fast-atom-bombardment mass spectrometry and linkage analysis by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, Smith degradation, and oxidation with chromium trioxide. It was concluded that complete oligosaccharide chains had the following structure: [GRAPHICS]
