Abstract

Summary: Cell-surface hydrophobicities of six species were studied by two methods: measurement of the contact angle, and partitioning with aqueous-hydrocarbon (n-octane, n-hexadecane and -xylene) mixtures. and adhered better to the hydrocarbons than did and . Contact angles for the less adherent species were smaller than those for the more adherent species. Thus the two methods gave results that were similar overall and indicated that and have greater cell-surface hydrophobicities than and .
