Abstract

SUMMARY: A survey has been made of the nature of phosphorylated wall polymers in a number of micrococci. Polymers found include typical glycerol and ribitol teichoic acids (polymers of glycerol phosphate or ribitol phosphate) having different sugar substituents. atypical teichoic acids in which the repeating unit comprises glycerol phosphate and -acetylglucosamine -phosphate, and sugar -phosphate polymers. Distinct chemogroups can be recognized based on the composition and structure of the wall polymers.
