Abstract

Oleic acid makes up >50% of the total fatty acids of Pneumocystis carinii grown on WI-38 cells. Oleic acid levels increased in parallel with increasing trophozoites over 7 days in culture. The fatty acid composition of P. carinii resembles that of certain fungi but differs from those of lung surfactant lipid, host cells, and fetal bovine serum.
