Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is an integral, heat stable part of the outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria. As such it is ubiquitous in the environment and also present in many reagents used in the life sciences. LPS’s synonym, endotoxin, hints at immunologic stimulant's ability to induce proinflammatory cytokines in vivo leading to severe potentially lethal reactions.
