Abstract

SUMMARY: Analysis of the fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) of bacteria is a commonly used chemotaxonomic technique. Application of this methodology to spirochaetes associated with Lyme borreliosis revealed distinct clusters corresponding to three genetically distinguished groups: , and the VS461 group. However, formed a common group with , a relapsing fever spirochaete, and VS461 grouped with and , two other relapsing fever spirochaetes. The diversity in fatty acid profiles of Lyme disease spirochaetes has implications for the protean clinical manifestations of the disease.
