Dear Colleagues, 
I am looking for a condition to grow up Salmonella strains that favours 
temporarily the production of only low numbers (e.g. one) or even no 
O-specific side chains in their lipopolysaccharide. I would appreciate if 
someone can suggest a method or refer me to someone who may have an 
answer. Thank you!
