Abstract

Fifteen strains, including some belonging to , or , incorporated radioactivity into their lipids when grown in a medium containing [1-C] acetate. The majority of the radioactivity was found in the glycolipid (43%) and the polar lipid (55%) fractions. The amount of radioactivity incorporated into the lipids (disintegrations per minute per milligram of lipid) of strains of 6 species was less than 1% of the amount found in the 15 strains. The ability to synthesize lipids from acetate is a useful criterion for differentiating the genus from .
