  1. LPS from Leptospira interogans serovar Copenhageni strain L1-130 (L1-130) and intermediate pathogenic, Leptospira licerasiae serovar Varillal strain VAR010 (VAR010) were purified from both aqueous (AQ) and phenol layer (PH) and subjected for composition analysis separately. Fatty acids in both aqueous (AQ) and phenol (PH) layer LPS extracts were measured and given in the table. Average (Ave) and Standard deviation (± SD) values are also presented in this table
