Three acidic oligosaccharide-alditols carrying Lewis X, Lewis Y and A-Lewis Y determinants were isolated from the jelly coat of Pleurodeles waltl eggs. These compounds possess the following structures. Gal beta 1-4(Fuc alpha 1-3)GlcNAc beta 1-3[2-oxo-3-deoxy-D- glycero-D-galactononulosonic acid (KDN)alpha 2-6] GalNAc-ol; Fuc alpha 1-2Gal beta 1-4(Fuc alpha 1-3)GlcNAc beta 1-3(KDN alpha 2-6) GalNAc-ol and Fuc alpha 1-2(GalNAc alpha 1-3)Gal beta 1-4(Fuc alpha 1-3)GlcNAc beta 1-3(KDN alpha 2-6)GalNAc-ol. The complete 1H-n.m.r.-spectrum assignment for the three compounds and the 13C-n.m.r. analysis of the A-Lewis Y determinant-containing heptasaccharide are reported.
