DiD mycolic acids were existed in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.(Ref. 0011)
a-unit, C24:0,C26:0; carbon chain length, L=17,18,19, M=10, N=15,17,19,21(Ref. 0016)
a-unit, C26:0; carbon chain length C84(Ref. 0005)
DiD mycolic acids were existed in Mycobacterium microti.
a-unit, C26:0; carbon chain length, L+M+N=42,44,46,48,50,52(Ref. 0008)
DiD mycolic acids (C80H156O3) were existed in Mycobacterium kansaii.(Ref. 0017)
DiD mycolic acids were existed in Mycobacterium diernhoferi.
a-unit, C22:0; carbon chain length C70(Ref. 0001),C71(Ref. 0004)
It is reported that Mycobacterium phlei has mycolic acids with carbon chain length with C72,74,76,77,78,79,80 as diene(Ref. 0014), with C70,72,74,76,77,78,80 as diene(Ref. 0010)
Increasing growth temperature resulted in an increase in longer chain species of mycolic acids with a concomitant decrease in shorter chain homologoues.(Ref. 0010/0014)
