Abstract

Thin-layer chromatography was used to examine the amino acid and carbohydrate composition of the cell wall of the type strain of and 11 clinical isolates. All strains contained alanine, glutamic acid, glycine, lysine, glucose, galactose, and another sugar tentatively identified as 6-deoxytalose. The amino acid composition of cell walls was found to be like that of a gram-positive bacterium.
