The occurrence, structure, and glycosylation of lipoteichoic acids were studied in 15 Bacillus strains, including Bacillus cereus (4 strains), Bacillus subtilis (5 strains), Bacillus licheniformis (1 strain), Bacillus polymyxa (2 strains), and Bacillus circulans (3 strains). Whereas in the cells of B. polymyxa and B. circulans neither lipoteichoic acid nor related amphipathic polymer could be detected, the cells of other Bacillus strains were shown to contain lipoteichoic acids built up of poly… CONTINUE READING
