Comparison of the O antigens of Shigella boydii types 10 and 6 by chemical analysis and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy showed that their structures are similar, with the only difference being the presence or absence of D-ribofuranose, which is the immunodominant sugar in S. boydii type 10. In S. boydii type 6, a residue previously reported as α-D-GlcpA, was shown to be β-D-GlcpA as in S. boydii type 10. S. boydii types 10 and 6 are reported not to cross-react serologically, and the...[Show more]
