Abstract

Rough and smooth colony variants of the complex were compared with respect to their composition in trehalose-containing glycolipid antigens in view of the results of a recent investigation suggesting that the chemical basis of rough and smooth colony morphology in mycobacteria may reside in the occurrence of lipooligosaccharides. A careful chemical characterization of the individual glycolipids of the selected strains allowed the identification of the major glycolipids. The comparative study of the glycolipid content of the smooth Canetti strain, its spontaneous rough variant, and 16 additional strains of and showed that the presence of lipooligosaccharides was not related to the morphology of the colonies.
