Piliated (P+) and non-piliated (P-) clones of Corynebacterium renale and C. pilosum were similar in hydrophobicity as measured by hydrophobic interaction chromatography, bacterial adherence to hydrocarbons and the salt aggregation test. Therefore, the previously reported adherence of P+ clone to various cells, which is more effective than that of P- clone, may be uncorrelated with the degree of hydrophobicity of both clones of these bacteria. Hydrophobicity of P+ and P- clones was found to be high when measured by hydrophobic interaction chromatography and bacterial adherence to hydrocarbons, but low when measured by the salt aggregation test.
