Detection of multiple mycoplasma infection in cell cultures by PCR.
A total of 301 cell cultures from 15 laboratories were monitored for mycoplasma (Mollicutes) using PCR and culture methodology. The infection was detected in the cell culture collection of 12Expand
Epidemiological survey on Mycoplasma gallisepticum and M. synoviae by multiplex PCR in commercial poultry
Mycoplasmas are important avian pathogens, which cause respiratory and joint diseases that result in large economic losses in Brazilian and world-wide poultry industry. This investigation regardingExpand
A quantitative TaqMan PCR assay for the detection of Mycoplasma suis
Aim:  To develop a TaqMan probe‐based, highly sensitive and specific quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay for the detection and quantification of Mycoplasma suis in the blood of pigs.
A review of the occurrence of hemoplasmas (hemotrophic mycoplasmas) in Brazil.
Recent studies have been conducted in Brazil using molecular techniques for the detection of hemotrophic mycoplasmas in several mammals. In domestic cats, Mycoplasma haemofelis, "Candidatus M.Expand
Prevalence of Mycoplasma genitalium and Mycoplasma hominis in urogenital tract of Brazilian women
BackgroundThe role of Mycoplasma hominis and M. genitalium in urogenital tract infections remains unknown. Furthermore these mollicutes present a complex relationship with the host immune response.Expand
Hemoplasma Infection in HIV-positive Patient, Brazil
Hemotrophic mycoplasmas infect a variety of mammals. Although infection in humans is rarely reported, an association with an immunocompromised state has been suggested. We report a case of aExpand
Detection of Ureaplasma diversum in cattle using a newly developed PCR-based detection assay.
Ureaplasma diversum has been associated with different clinical manifestations including bovine vulvitis, endometritis, salpingitis, spontaneous abortion and infertility. Because the isolation ofExpand
Complete Genome Sequence of Mycoplasma suis and Insights into Its Biology and Adaption to an Erythrocyte Niche
Mycoplasma suis, the causative agent of porcine infectious anemia, has never been cultured in vitro and mechanisms by which it causes disease are poorly understood. Thus, the objective herein was toExpand
Use of a Polymerase Chain Reaction for Detection of Mycoplasma Dispar in the Nasal Mucus of Calves
A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay was developed for the detection of Mycoplasma dispar in nasal mucus samples collected from calves. The target DNA sequence was the 16S rRNA gene, and theExpand
Mycoplasma genitalium can modulate the local immune response in patients with endometriosis.
OBJECTIVE To detect Mollicutes in women with endometriosis and healthy peritoneal tissues and evaluate the participation of these bacteria in the immune response during endometriosis. DESIGNExpand
