Abstract

Agglutination serotypes were investigated by testing mycobacterial cultures from various sources with a large battery of antisera raised in rabbits. Absorption of agglutinins was performed when necessary to clarify serological relationships. Types in addition to those already described were recognized as follows: , serotype Cole; , seven serotypes (34 strains isolated from various water sources were serotype Marshall); types 1 and 2; and It is proposed that these types be numbered, respectively, as follows: complex, serotype 44; , serotypes 1 to 7 (Kowal, Marshall, Szent, Puntal, Moore, Lanton, and Brown, respectively); , serotypes 1 and 2; and The strains of included in this study could not be separated into different types by the techniques utilized.
