Abstract

SUMMARY

A comparison has been made between the serological properties of 35 strains of and the carbohydrate components of corresponding cell-wall preparations. All strains of var. belonged to serological group C, whereas strains of var. belonged to group B or C. Rhamnose was the major cell-wall component of group B strains, galactose glucose being minor variable components. Of the group C strains only those classified as var. contained significant amounts of rhamnose in the cell wall. All strains in group C, however, contained galactose and glucose as major cell-wall components.
