Cellular and free lipopolysaccharides (LPS) obtained from Neisseria canis and N. subflava were essentially identical. Both cellular and free lipopolysaccharides contained O-polysaccharides of the following composition: L-rhamnose (46 mol), D-glucose (16 mol), L-glycero-D-manno-heptose (2 mol), ethanolamine (2 mol), 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic acid (1 mol), and phosphate (1.5 mol). The core oligosaccharide, which was common to the cellular and free LPS of both organisms, contained L-rhamnose (4 mol), D-glucose (2 mol), L-glycero-D-manno-heptose (2 mol), 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic acid (1 mol), ethanolamine (2 mol), and phosphate (1.5 mol). Accumulated results on LPS composition and structure indicated that Neisseria perflava, N. subflava, and N. flava could not be combined into a single species. On the basis of its nutritional requirements and LPS structure, N. canis could be considered a strain of N. subflava.
