Fatty acid and mycolic acid composition of JK and D2 corynebacteria

, : Fatty acid and mycolic acid composition of JK and D2 corynebacteria. Systematic & Applied Microbiology. 15(3): 336-339

The patterns of cellular fatty acids and mycolic acids of 15 strains of cutaneous corynebacteria, including 6 strains of the Corynebacterium JK group and 7 strains of the Corynebacterium D2 group, were examined. All strains had large amounts of saturated and monounsaturated straight chain fatty acids and only trace amounts of tuberculostearic acid. Iso and anteiso branched acids were not present. Their mycolic acids in the range from C26 to C36 were identified. JK, ANF and I strains differed in their patterns of mycolic acid composition from Corynebacterium D2 group. JK strains showed high levels of C34-C36 components and lower levels of C26-C28 mycolic acids while D2 strains demonstrated a high level of C26-C28 acids and no C34-C36 content.

The principal objective of this work has been to determine whether Asn831 of the alpha chain of Na/K-ATPase is located at the cytoplasmic or extracellular surface. Asn831 is the N-terminal residue of a 19-kDa C-terminal tryptic fragment which, tog...
