The "Pittsburgh pneumonia agent," isolated by Pasculle and co-workers from human lung tissue, has been cultured on artificial media and characterized. The "Pittsburgh" bacterium and the TATLOCK and HEBA bacteria have identical cultural, biochemical, and antigenic characteristics. They also have the same cellular fatty-acid composition, and DNA relatedness indicates that they belong to the same species.
