Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0015920 - lipopolysaccharide transport

Synonyms: LPS transport

Definition: The directed movement of lipopolysaccharides into, out of or within a cell, or between cells, by means of some agent such as a transporter or pore. A lipopolysaccharide is any of a group of related, structurally complex components of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria. Lipopolysaccharides consist three covalently linked regions, lipid A, core oligosaccharide, and an O side chain. Lipid A is responsible for the toxicity of the lipopolysaccharide.
