Abstract

Whole-cell fatty acid methylester fingerprints of 83 streptococcal strains were determined by gas chromatography. The major cellular fatty acids were invariably tetradecanoic, hexadecanoic, octadecanoic, and octadecenoic acids. On the basis of “minor fatty acid” composition, it was possible to distinguish between three types of streptococci of uncertain taxonomic status, collectively referred to in the literature as “,” and two groups of serovars of proved fairly heterogeneous, as expected. , and had qualitatively distinct profiles.
