Myobacteria are characterized by a trehalose-lipopolysaccharide-containing outer cell membrane. The Azide-functionalized 6-Azido-Trehalose provides an attractive approach for the detection of Myobacteria in living cultures[1]: It is cell-permeable, intracellularly processed and incorporated instead of its natural counterpart.

Myobacteria strains tested[1]:
Mycobacterium smegmatis mc2155, Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv, Mycobacterium bovis BCG
