Known as lipid A, it is highly conserved in Enterobacteriaceae and in Pseudomonaceae. Anaerobic gram-negative bacteria, such as Bacteroides fragilis, lack lipid A, perhaps explaining why sepsis is not as common when infection is caused by anaerobes. Once a pathogenic organism invades a host barrier, its cell wall molecules (lipid A in gramnegative bacteria; and peptidoglycan, teichoic acid, or toxic shock toxin-1 [TSST-1] in gram positives) are sensed by local defense cells expressing specific host proteins on their surface, such as CD14 and toll-like receptors (TLRs).
