|Product Overview:||LPS was purified from Escherichia coli O55:B5. altra pure.|
|Description:||Lipopolysaccharides (LPS), also known as lipoglycans and endotoxins, are large molecules consisting of a lipid and a polysaccharide composed of O-antigen, outer core and inner core joined by a covalent bond; they are found in the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, and elicit strong immune responses in animals.|
|Source:||E. coli O55:B5|
|Species:||E. coli O55:B5|
|Form:||LPS is dispersible in aqueous solvents at concentrations of 1 mg/ml. To achieve suspension in water, heating to about 50 centigrade with intermittent vortexing or sonication is recommedded. Allow ample tion for dispersion to occur. The use of 0.5% triethlamine aids in dispersion. Triehylamine is very basic and may be neutralized with Tris HCl to avoid hydrolysis of the LPS fatty acid chains.|
|Storage:||Store at 2-8 centigrade prior to and following reconstitution.|
