Abstract

Deoxyribonucleic acid of grown in mice was isolated and analyzed spectrophotometrically. The genome molecular weight and guanine-plus-cytosine content of this . deoxyribonucleic acid were 1.8 × 10 and 65.5 mol%, respectively. Among selected strains of mycobacterial species, four strains of showed the highest degree of deoxyribonucleic acid homology (74.2 to 92.9%) with . , suggesting a close genetic relatedness.
