Abstract

Corynebacterium renale ATCC 19412 (C. renale immunological type I), strain 46 Hara (C. renale immunological type II), and strain 42 Fukuya (C. renale immunological type III) were similar in that they contained arabinose, galactose, and glucose as cell wall sugars, and alanine, glutamic acid, and meso-diaminopimelic acid as cell wall amino acids. The results indicate that strains 46 Hara and 42 Fukuya are similar to the species of human and animals parasites and pathogens of genus Corynebacterium in the cell wall components.
