adherence to host cell-capsule hindrance

... resist attachment of complement to their cellular surfaces, and can evade these mechanisms of the host immune system. However, the bacterial polysaccharide is directly antigenic, so antibody response against different capsular polysaccharides will eventually be built by the host, rendering ...

Re: fructose as a monomer for a polysaccharide

So I went back to my biochemistry textbook to find the exact wording that will satisfy everyone. I was using an incomplete explanation. The way that it goes is that the anomeric carbon (the carbon adjacent to the oxygen in the sugar ring is the one that makes the ketone group in the open ring form a...
