Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The cellular fatty acid composition of 29 human and animal isolates of Campylobacter fetus was determined with gas-liquid chromatography. All strains contained small amounts of 3-hydroxytetradecanoic acid, suggesting the presence of lipid A. Each of 13 different blood or stool isolates of C. fetus subsp. jejuni obtained from humans or fowl contained a 19-carbon cyclopropane acid which was not present in C. fetus subsp. fetus (6 strains from cattle) or C. fetus subsp. intestinalis (10 strains from humans and cattle). These findings indicate that C. fetus subsp. jejuni can be rapidly differentiated from other C. fetus by gas-liquid chromatography analysis of cellular fatty acids.
