Preparation of protoplasts and whole cell ghosts from Mycobacterium smegmatis


, : Preparation of protoplasts and whole cell ghosts from Mycobacterium smegmatis. Journal of General Microbiology 115(2): 517-521

Cell wall-deficient forms of Mycobacterium smegmatis were produced in growth medium containing D-cycloserine and horse serum. These cells were transformed into protoplasts with EDTA and lysozyme. Subsequent lysis by nucleases followed by osmotic shock produced membrane vesicles (whole cell ghosts).

On the basis of a study of the effect of trimethoprim on the growth of 131 rapidly growing mycobacteria identified at the species level, it was found that 2 of the stains were possibly misidentified. This suspicion was confirmed by checking the sa...

(1-4C)acetate was incorporated into mycolic acids by a cell-free, cell-wall fraction from Mycobacterium smegmatis. This activity was inhibited by methyl 4-(2-octadecylcyclopropen-1-yl) butanoate which was designed as a structural analogue of cis-t...

The resistance development pattern of Mycobacterium smegmatis strain 17023 (Jucho) to streptomycin and kanamycin was studied. The medium used was Ogawa egg medium, and the level of resistance was determined for each clone derived from single colon...
