Abstract

We found that ATCC 33776 (T = type strain) contains a new kind of mycolic acid with a methoxy group at the ω-1 position. This mycolic acid was identified by comparing it with the previously described methoxymycolic acids. The patterns of mycolic acid methyl esters from 418 strains belonging to 44 species of mycobacteria were studied by using thin-layer chromatography. In addition to ATCC 33776, representative strains of , and a recently isolated sp. contained appreciable amounts of the newly described mycolic acid.
