This chapter provides a review of the biochemistry, genetics, and biological roles of capsular polysaccharides (CPSs). The chapter is limited to consideration of PS capsules that have been detected in and other closely related species such as . Differentiation between groups is not based on antigenic or structural differences of the polysaccharide (PS) chains, but on such features as the mechanisms of biosynthesis, assembly, genetic regulation, and sequence similarity. The first indirect evidence of CPS produced by was reported. The first one to be studied was the mutant of strain NCTC 11168. Importantly, the absence or presence of these modifying groups affects the stainability of the PSs with silver and/or its interaction with homologous antiserum, which may in part explain their previous lack of detection in some serotypes. Differentiation of CPS-producing strains could be based on the probes corresponding to the genes involved in particular biosynthetic pathways. It would also be interesting to study a role of phosphoramidate modification of CPS in colonization and interaction with the host immune system. Initial attempts to develop a vaccine against infection, particularly in chickens, have not been very successful. Initial studies in the development of a human vaccine have focused on the use of heat- and formalin-attenuated whole-cell vaccines. In another study, a live attenuated strain vectoring the PEB1 antigen of , which is implicated in colonization ability was evaluated as a vaccine against infection, but no protection was observed.
