Comment
Lipophilic corynebacterial species that lacks in the cell envelope the characteristic alpha-alkyl-beta-hydroxy long-chain fatty acids, designated mycolic acids.
Capable of utilizing some sugars as carbon and energy sources, such as glucose, sucrose, and maltose.
Remarkable feature of metabolism is the presence of the mevalonate pathway for the biosynthesis of isoprene units instead of the 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol 4-phosphate pathway.
Originally isolated from sputum of an 82-year-old female with pulmonary disease.
