Identification of lipoglycan antigens from the Acholeplasma laidlawii cell membrane in crossed immunoelectrophoresis.

Membranes from the wall-less prokaryote Acholeplasma laidlawii contain a component termed lipoglycan or lipopolysaccharide (LPS). The lipoglycan has extraction properties, which are similar to those of LPS of gram-negative bacteria, but it is chemically distinct from bacterial LPS. The membrane-bound lipoglycan of A. laidlawii did not seem to be particularly immunogenic and antibodies against it could not always be detected by rocket immunoelectrophoresis (RIE) or crossed immunoelectrophoresis (CIE) in hyperimmune sera raised against membranes. The immunoprecipitate corresponding to the lipoglycan, obtained by CIE of Tween 20-solubilized A. laidlawii membranes, has been identified and shown to be both a cathodically and anodically migrating component at pH 8. 6. The shape of the immunoprecipitate in both RIE and CIE showed that the lipoglycan antigen is composed of at least two components, which are immunologically related.[1]
