Thin-layer chromatography was used to examine the amino acid and carbohydrate composition of the cell wall of the type strain of Gardnerella vaginalis and 11 clinical isolates. All strains contained alanine, glutamic acid, glycine, lysine, glucose, galactose, and another sugar tentatively identified as 6-deoxytalose. The amino acid composition of G. vaginalis cell walls was found to be like that of a gram-positive bacterium.
