Teichoic acids are bacterial polysaccharides of glycerol phosphate or ribitol phosphate linked via phosphodiester bonds.

Lysis of Gram-positive bacteria and release of the teichoic acid into the bloodstream may cause fever, blood vessel dilation and possibly shock and subsequent death. Teichoic acid can also be used by bacteria to attach to mucosal membranes. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
