We have determined the cell wall composition, guanine-plus-cytosine (G+C) contents of the DNA, rRNA gene restriction patterns, and the levels of DNA-DNA relatedness of 11 strains identified biochemically as Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Corynebacterium group absolute nonfermenter 1 (Corynebacterium group ANF-1). For seven of these strains, growth is abundant on 5% sheep blood agar, which differentiates them from the four other strains, whose growth requires a lipid supplement such as Tween… CONTINUE READING
