Abstract

A red, scotochromogenic mutant of the non-acid-fast strain ofMycobacterium phlei was obtained. Mutual relationship between this mutant and rapidly growing mycobacteria was studied using complex morphological, cultivation, biochemical and serological analyses as well as determination of the base composition in DNA. Taxonomical aspects of individual analyses are discussed.
