Bacteriophage-typable revertants from pleiotropic staphylococcal mutants.

By R Z Korman


Cell walls were physically purified from bacteriophage-typable revertants that had been isolated from modified cell wall pleiotropic strains derived from Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 8511. The quantitative amino acid, amino sugar, and phosphorus contents of these cell walls are reported. Among the revertants were some whose walls possessed elevated serine and one strain whose walls contained the novel amino sugar galactosamine. The similarities in bacteriophage typing patterns between the revertants and the original parental strain lead to the conclusion that the previously described pleiotropic strains are mutants of NCTC 8511
