Abstract

A test for susceptibility to 5-fluorouracil was useful for differentiating between species of rapidly growing mycobacteria, and for differentiating the genus from the genus . The majority of rhodococci tested were susceptible to 5-fluorouracil (20 μg ml), whereas the majority of nocardiae tested were resistent to it. Strains of could be divided into two subgroups by their reaction to 5-fluorouracil.
