AbstractDuring the fermentation of glucose, sucrose, or lactose by Bacilluspolymyxa, a mixture of polysaccharides is formed, one of which has been isolated by mild procedures and shown to contain mannose as the only sugar together with approximately 13% protein. Acid hydrolysis of the methylated mannan gave 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-methyl-D-mannose, 2,4,6-tri-O-methyl-D-mannose, 3,4,6-tri-O-methyl-D-mannose, and 3,4-di-O-methyl-D-mannose in the approximate ratio 2:1:1:2. Periodate oxidation results are in agreement with the methylation data and indicate a molecular weight of approximately 3000.
