  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Biochemical journal
  • 1965
1. The growth factor from Mycobacterium phlei is now named mycobactin P to distinguish it from related but chemically distinct growth factors from other species of mycobacteria. It is shown toExpand
Chemical and biological properties of mycobactins isolated from various mycobacteria.
TLDR
Nine different strains of mycobacteria grown on media deficient in iron all produced mycobs having the same nucleus but with different distributions of side chains within the homologous mixtures. Expand
Isolation and structure of mycobactin T, a growth factor from Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Biochemical journal
  • 1 October 1965
TLDR
The differences in biosynthesis between mycobactin T and P are discussed and their components have fatty acid side chains that are mostly different from the side chains of the components in myc Cobactin P preparations. Expand
Methods for the separation and identification of mycobactins from various species of mycobacteria.
A single pure component was isolated from mycobactin P by countercurrent distribution; its side chain is n-cis-octadec-2-enoyl; its purity and molecular structure were confirmed by mass spectrometryExpand
Isolation and structure of nocobactin NA, a lipid-soluble iron-binding compound from Nocardia asteroides.
Nocobactin NA, a lipid-soluble iron-chelating product with an unusual and characteristic u.v.-absorption spectrum, was isolated from Nocardia asteroides grown under conditions of iron deficiency. ItsExpand
