  • The changes of the cell pigment composition of two non-acid-fast forms ofMycobacterium phlei (PN, PNR), caused by exposure to daylight, were studied. Though during cultivation in the dark carotenes were mostly produced, cultures exposed to the light mostly formed their oxygen-containing derivatives. Xanthins derived from lycopene, the main carotenoid formed by the PNR strain, were obtained from the mycelium of this mycobacterium after it was exposed to daylight. The exposure of the PN culture… CONTINUE READING
