Abstract

Ultrastructural studies, cell wall analysis by gas chromatography, and cell lysing studies were utilized in the preliminary classification of an unidentified organism. The results of these analyses lead to the conclusion that the organism is a member of the genus Corynebacterium. A preliminary analysis of the coral-colored pigment produced by this organism also was performed using column chromatography, infrared spectra, nuclear magnetic resonance, and mass spectroscopy. Additionally, mass spectroscopy was used to elucidate the struc­tures and confirm the molecular weights of the six fractions of prodigiosin obtained from Serratia marcescens pigment by column chromatography.
