Abstract

Fatty acids of 16 strains of isolated from the human oral cavity were examined by gas-liquid chromatography. The strains showed similar patterns, characterized by the presence of straight-chain fatty acids in the range C to C. Fatty acids of odd-numbered carbon atoms dominated and the major acids were -pentadecanoate and 3-hydroxytridecanoate. The general fatty acid pattern of differed distinctly from those of other previously analysed anaerobic or microaerophilic Gram-negative bacilli.
