[Chemotaxonomic markers of several coryneform bacteria and the "Rhodochrous" group].

[Article in Russian]


Chemotaxonomic characters (the monosaccharide composition and diaminopimelic acid (DAP) of cell hydrolysates, the type of lipid LCN-A) were studied with bacteria of the "rhodochrous" complex and the Arthrobacter genus isolated from natural substrates as well as with collection strains of the genera Arthrobacter, Brevibacterium and Corynebacterium. If arabinose, galactose and meso-DAP were present in cell hydrolysates of these bacteria, they always contained lipid LCN-A. Bacteria of the "rhodochrous" complex can be differentiated from Corynebacterium sensu stricto by location of lipid LCN-A spots on chromatograms, and from the genera Brevibacterium (B. linens) and Arthrobacter, by the presence of arabinose, meso-DAP and lipid LCN-A in the cells. The representatives of two latter genera do not contain arabinose and lipid LCN-A in their cells.
