Some endotoxic properties of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and lipids A (LA) from the marine bacteria Marinomonas communis ATCC 27118T, Marinomonas mediterranea ATCC 700492T, and Chryseobacterium indoltheticum CIP 103168T were studied. The preparations tested were shown to have high 50% lethal doses (4 μg per mouse for LPS from M. mediterranea and more than 12 μg per mouse for two other LPS and LA from C. indoltheticum) and were moderate (371 ± 37 pg/ml at 10 μg/ml of C. indoltheticum LPS), weak (148 ± 5 pg/ml at 1 μg/ml of M. mediterranea LPS), and zero (LA and LPS from M. communis and LA from C. indoltheticum) inducers of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) release from peripheral human blood cells. The capacity of the LA and LPS samples from marine bacteria to inhibit TNF-α release induced by LPS from Escherichia coli O55: B5 (10 ng/ml) was also studied.
