Abstract The surface polysaccharides of a strain of Serratia plymuthica were characterised and shown to consist of a linear, acidic galactoglucomannan as well as a major and a minor neutral galactan. Immunoblotting results demonstrated cross-reactions between this strain and others with similar galactans (S. marcescens O16 and O20, Klebsiella O1, and Pasteurella haemolytica T4 and T10).
