Abstract

Squalene and three sterols were isolated from (Myxobacterales). The sterol content was about 0·4% of the dry weight; squalene content was in the same range. The main component was identified as cholest-8(9)-en-3-ol. [CMevalonate was readily incorporated into the sterols. The bacterium was not inhibited by nystatin or amphotericin B.
