The antigenicity and cross-reactivity of glycolipids from strains of bovine farcy and the Mycobacterium chelonae-M. fortuitum complex were analyzed using the ELISA technique. Purified alkali-stable glycopeptidolipids (GPLs) with a characteristic dimethylrhamnosyl sugar unit extracted from M. abscessus, M. chelonae, M. peregrinum and M. senegalense, gave very strong reactions with sera against members of the same four species. Particularly strong cross-reactions were evident between M… CONTINUE READING
