Abstract

SUMMARY: Trehalose-6-monomycolate (TMM) was isolated from the lipids of armadillo-derived Only meagre amounts of this glycolipid were recovered, but its structure was unequivocally established. Only α-mycolates were detected in the TMM by Cf plasma desorption mass spectrometry. Electron impact mass spectrometry showed the alpha branch to be principally C. Trehalose dimycolate (cord factor) was not detectable. Since we have also found TMM in and in every species so far examined, we suggest that this glycolipid is truly ubiquitous amongst mycobacteria.
