Abstract

Summary: Mycobactins were isolated from five strains designated and a similar number designated following growth under conditions of iron-limitation. These lipid-soluble iron-chelating compounds were characterized by a combination of thin-layer and high-performance liquid chromatography. The mycobactins from both the slow-growing and the rapidly-growing strains proved impossible to differentiate both from each other and from those produced by strains of , indicating a close relationship between all three species. However, , previously implicated with the bovine farcy strains, produced a different mycobactin which was easily distinguished by thin-layer chromatography alone.
