Contagious agalactia of small ruminants: current knowledge concerning epidemiology, diagnosis and control.
TLDR
The main mode of transmission between flocks is related to the sale of carrier animals and contact during transhumance, whereas transmission within a flock occurs through contact, suckling and milking. Expand
Overall Decrease in the Susceptibility of Mycoplasma bovis to Antimicrobials over the Past 30 Years in France
TLDR
To identify resistances that were acquired over the last 30 years in France and to determine their prevalence within comtemporary strains, the minimum inhibition concentration (MIC) values of 12 antimicrobials, considered active on M. bovis isolates obtained in 1978–1979 and in 2010–2012 were compared. Expand
The role of Mycoplasma bovis in bovine respiratory disease outbreaks in veal calf feedlots.
TLDR
M. bovis was the most frequently isolated aetiologic agent in these BRD outbreaks, spreading early and widely throughout the affected units (60-100% rate of isolation and seroconversion). Expand
Serological prevalence of Mycoplasma bovis infection in suckling beef cattle in France
TLDR
The prevalence of Mycoplasma bovis infection in France was assessed by means of a serological survey of suckling beef cattle, using an ELISA, and the infection was unevenly distributed among the areas tested. Expand
Species identification of Mycoplasma bovis and Mycoplasma agalactiae based on the uvrC genes by PCR.
TLDR
The specificity of the primer pairs for the two species was demonstrated through the lack of cross-amplifications in heterologous PCR reactions and in reactions using DNA from other mycoplasma species, and the uvrC genes are well conserved in both species but differ significantly between the twospecies. Expand
Insertion element IS1296 in Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides small colony identifies a European clonal line distinct from African and Australian strains.
TLDR
The molecular definition of clonality of M. mycoides SC strains with IS1296 represents a rapid and reproducible method for subtyping and differentiation of vaccine strains and indicates that strains from Africa and Australia form a clonal lineage different from that of the European strains. Expand
Mycoplasmoses of ruminants in France: recent data from the national surveillance network
TLDR
Although VIGIMYC is a passive network and somewhat biased as regards sample collection and processing, it has provided an overview of the main mycoplasmoses of ruminants in France and the French epidemiological situation is compared to those existing elsewhere in the world. Expand
An international collaborative study to determine the prevalence of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia by monoclonal antibody-based cELISA
TLDR
A new competitive ELISA kit for CCPP, based on a previous blocking ELISA, was formatted and used to evaluate the prevalence of CCPP in some regions of Kenya, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Tajikistan and Pakistan in an international collaborative study and retained the high specificity of the original kit. Expand
Characterization of Free Exopolysaccharides Secreted by Mycoplasma mycoides Subsp. mycoides
TLDR
A method to produce large quantities of EPS by transfer of mycoplasma cells from their complex broth to a chemically defined medium and subsequent purification and in silico analyses of candidate polysaccharide biosynthetic pathways in order to decipher the potential link between glucose phosphotransferase permease activity and attachment/release of galactan. Expand
Identification of ruminant mycoplasmas by dot immunobinding on membrane filtration (MF dot).
TLDR
The method was tested on 22 type-strains representative of species, subspecies, types or yet unnamed serogroups of mycoplasmas isolated from ruminants and presented a specificity close to that which could be expected from the reference serological tests. Expand
