Occurrence of a novel glycolipid, 'trehalose 2,3,6'‐trimycolate' in a psychrophilic, acid‐fast bacterium, Rhodococcus aurantiacus (Gordona aurantiaca)
A new type of glycolipid possessing trehalose and mycolic acids has been identified in the lipids of Rhodococcus aurantiacus (Gordona aurantiaca), a psychrophilic acid‐fast bacterium. GasExpand

Changes in molecular species composition of nocardomycolic acids in nocardia rubra by the growth temperature
Nocardomycolic acids from Nocardia rubra were fully separated and characterized by a combination of argentation thin-layer chromatography and gas chromatography — mass spectrometry (GCMS). TheExpand

Incorporation of 18O into long-chain, secondary alcohols derived from ester mycolic acids in Mycobacterium phlei
Abstract 18 O from an 18 O 2 atmosphere was actively incorporated into long-chain, secondary alcohols, such as 2-octadecanol, 2-eicosanol and 2-docosanol, which are derived from ester mycolic acids,Expand
