Identification of Mycobacterium phlei TMC 1523 and Mycobacterium smegmatis SN40 as Members of Mycobacterium smegmatis and Mycobacterium fortuitum, Respectively: Selective Inhibition by Trimethoprim



Identification of Mycobacterium phlei TMC 1523 and Mycobacterium smegmatis SN40 as Members of Mycobacterium smegmatis and Mycobacterium fortuitum, Respectively: Selective Inhibition by Trimethoprim



International Bulletin of Bacteriological Nomenclature and Taxonomy 28(4): 602-604



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 salient phenotypic characters of the strains.
