  • a See Table 2 for glycoform compositions. The subscript numbers indicate the numbers of phosphoethanolamine moieties, and the numbers of asterisks indicate the numbers of Neu5Ac moieties.

  • b The values were normalized to the sum of the values for the B glycoforms under each type of growth conditions.

  • c Each glycoform contained one phosphorylcholine moiety.
