Abstract :
Mutants of Acetobacter tropicalis SKU1100 (R) strain, ΔpolE and ΔgalE, defective in pellicle formation, excrete exopolysaccharide (EPS) instead of capsular polysaccharide (CPS) that is produced by the wild-type. We carried out structural analysis of wild type CPS and mutant EPSs using monosaccharide composition analysis, methylation analysis, and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Wild-type CPS and ΔpolE mutant EPS had a branched hexasaccharide repeating unit composed of 2 moles of 2,3-α-l-rhamnopyranosyl, and 1 mole each of 6-β-d-galactopyranosyl and 2-α-d-glucopyranosyl residues, of which the rhamnosyl residues were branched by terminal-β-d-galactofuranosyl and terminal-α-d-glucopyranosyl residues. The EPS of ΔgalE mutant showed a branched tetrasaccharide repeating unit composed of 2,3-α-l-rhamnopyranosyl, 2-α-d-glucopyranosyl, and 3-α-l-rhamnopyranosyl residues and terminal-α-d-glucopyranosyl branch residue. By comparing the three structures, it was suggested that PolE may control the switching of EPS to CPS by adding some residue, e.g. β-d-galactopyranosyl residue, to 2,3-α-l-rhamnopyranosyl residue to make 2,3,4-α-l-rhamnosyl residue which leads to CPS formation.
