A novel extracellular cyclic lipopeptide which promotes flagellum-dependent and -independent spreading growth of Serratia marcescens.
Serrawettin W2, a surface-active exolipid produced by nonpigmented Serratia marcescens NS 25, was examined for its chemical structure and physiological functions. The chemical structure wasExpand

Mycolic acids from Rhodococcus, Gordonia, and Dietzia.
The mycolic acids from 11 species of Rhodococcus, seven species of Gordonia, and one species of Dietzia were analyzed using capillary gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GLC/MS). All strainsExpand

Various kinds of lipoamino acids including a novel serine-containing lipid in an opportunistic pathogen Flavobacterium. Their structures and biological activities on erythrocytes.
Lipoamino acids were found to represent 60% of the total extractable cellular lipids in Flavobacterium meningosepticum and F. indologenes which are known to be opportunistic pathogens. The structuresExpand

Immunological Properties of Trehalose Dimycolate (Cord Factor) and Other Mycotic Acid‐Containing Glycolipids–‐A Review
Mycolic acids are characteristic fatty acids of Mycobacteria and are responsible for the wax‐like consistence of these microorganisms. Decades of research revealed that mycolic acid‐containingExpand
