Abstract

The cell envelopes of actinomycetes contain lipidated macroamphiphiles, of which the most extensively characterised are the lipoarabinomannans of mycobacteria and related bacteria. We have investigated the mycolic acid-containing actinomycete Gordonia bronchialis and identified the presence of a lipoarabinomannan-like lipoglycan. The extraction and purification procedures recovered a second amphiphilic fraction with properties suggesting a phosphatidylinositol mannoside, consistent with studies of other Gordonia species.
