Extraction of staphylococcal abscesses by the Folch procedure revealed that all of the staphylocidal activity was present in the lipid fraction. Further separation of the lipids indicated that the bactericidal activity resided in the free fatty acid pool. Lipids similarly extracted from mesenteric or epididymal fat tissue, either before of after activation, did not possess comparable activity. Myristic, palmitic, palmitoleic, linoleic, and oleic acids, as well as lysolecithin, also failed to… CONTINUE READING
