Studies on the occurrence of the cord factor in a typical mycobacteria



Studies on the occurrence of the cord factor in a typical mycobacteria



Arch Immunol Therap Exp 13(3): 344-354



The frequency of occurrence of the cord factor in typical, atypical and unclassified strains of acid-fast bacilli was compared in relation to type of culture. A modified method of slide culture was used, in which the inoculum consisted of suspensions of the organs of mice sacrificed 8 days after injection. In cultures of this type colonies showing typical cord formation were encountered much more frequently (33.9%) than in direct cultures in liquid Youmans medium (12.1%). Occurrence 01" the cord factor and results of the cytochemical test were not found to be correlated.
