A non-proteolytic strain of Clostridium botulinum (NCIB 4270) was found to have a complex lipid composition, comprising five major phosphorus-containing lipids: phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), phosphatidylglycerol (PG), diphosphatidylglycerol (DPG), phosphatidylserine (PS) and a glycophospholipid of unknown structure (GPL), in order of abundance. Changing the growth temperature did not alter the lipid composition either qualitatively or quantitatively. The main fatty acyl components of the… CONTINUE READING
