  • Relevance

    LPS is a major component of the cell membrane of Gram negative bacteria, contributing greatly to the structural integrity of the bacteria, and protecting the membrane from certain kinds of chemical attack. LPS is an endotoxin, inducing a strong response from normal animal immune systems. LPS function has been under experimental research for several years due to its role in activating many transcriptional factors, which become active after stimulation with LPS. LPS also induces many types of mediators involved in septic shock. Chlamydia trachomatis is an intracellular organism. It has a genome size of approximately 500-1000kB and contains both RNA and DNA. Colonization of Chlamydia begins with attachment to sialic acid receptors on the eye, throat or genitalia. It persists at body sites that are inaccessible to phagocytes, T-cells, and B-cells. It also exists as 15 different serotypes. These serotypes cause four major diseases in humans: endemic trachoma (caused by serotypes A and C), sexually transmitted disease and inclusion conjunctivitis (caused by serotypes D and K), and lymphogranuloma venereum (caused by serotypes L1, L2, and L3). Studies reveal that Chlamydia, because of its cell wall, is able to inhibit phagolysosome fusion in phagocytes. The cell wall is proposed to be gram-negative in that it contains an outer lipopolysaccharide (LPS) membrane, but it lacks peptidoglycan in its cell wall.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your inquiry and your patience with this request.   I have received additional information from the lab. The MW of LPS will be dependent on the strain and species of bacteria used, so an exact MW is not given. LPS is a polymer and by its nature comes in a wide range of molecular weights which can range from 10 kDa to 100 kDa in most bacterial species. I hope this information helps. Please contact us with any other questions.
