Abstract

A characteristic mycobacterial wax, phthiocerol dimycocerosate, has been isolated from liver of armadillos experimentally infected with . The structure of this wax is generally similar to that produced by but the homologous phthiocerol and the mycocerosic acid components from are significantly different from those of
