In this chapter we will discuss how lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is transported and assembled from its site of synthesis (the cytoplasm and the inner membrane) to the cell surface. This is a remarkably complex process, as LPS must traverse three different cellular compartments to reach its final destination.

Abstract

In this chapter we will discuss how lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is transported and assembled from its site of synthesis (the cytoplasm and the inner membrane) to the cell surface. This is a remarkably complex process, as LPS must traverse three different cellular compartments to reach its final destination.
