Quoting Kenneth Kinman <kennethkinman at webtv.net>:

> Hi Brian (Tindall),
>        You mentioned mycolic acids arranged in the outer membrane of
> some gram-positive bacteria, which might indicate that they are actually
> diderms (rather than monoderms).
>         However, thus far I could only find mention of mycolic acids in
> their cell wall, not in an outer membrane which would be homologous with
> the diderm outer membrane.  Or am I missing something here?  Need a
> literature citation to verify that mycolic acids exist in a true outer
> membrane.
>             --------Thanks,
