Both NANA and KDO are ulosonic acids but Kdo has only eight carbons and no
acetammido group like NANA. I think KDO is mostly from bacterial sources
whereas NANA is most common in mamalians.
I hope this will helpp a little bit, but if you specify your question more I
probably can send you some references.
