Mycolic acids are a class of long chain α-alkyl-β-hydroxy fatty acids which constitute a significant part of the outer membrane bilayer of Mycobacteria. Due to their ability to fold in a zipper like structure they form an impenetrable and highly apolar layer. Mycolic acids have various functions and are vital for the survival and pathogenesis of mycobacteria.
