NR-14854 contains a preparation of mycolic acid methyl esters (MAME) that were purified from the mycolyl-arabinogalactan peptidoglycan (mAGP) complex of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis). mAGP was subjected to alkaline hydrolysis and the mycolic acids were collected and neutralized. Chloroform and water are added to the mycolic acid suspension to form a biphasic partition, and the organic fraction containing mycolic acid is collected and dried.

Each tube contains approximately 1 mg of dried MAME from M. tuberculosis, strain H37Rv.

Note: MAME is soluble in DMSO or chloroform.
