Quick Reference

1. Capsular polysaccharide antigens of Gram-negative bacteria, identified by serotyping. K serotyping has been a preferred method, e.g. for Klebsiella, because many types (77) are known and there is a correlation between K antigen type and pathogenicity. K antigens are subdivided into type I and II on the basis of chemical and genetic criteria.

2. See Kell antigens.
