Abstract

SUMMARY

In a survey of over 1000 isolates of aerobic skin coryneforms from a wide variety of sources, Chromatographie methods were used to identify the major cell-wall components in whole-cell hydrolysates.

Most of the skin isolates-like members of the genus - possessed mejo-diaminopimelic acid and arabinose. However, substantial numbers of coryneforms apparently resident on the skin did not have this pattern; the sites from which they were isolated suggested that some were derived from the environment whilst others (possessing and galactose but not arabinose as major wall components) were members of the resident skin flora.
