A previously characterized lipid-modified amphiphilic surface protein of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, p65, has been defined by its reaction with a surface-binding monoclonal antibody (MAb) and by its exclusive partitioning into the detergent phase during Triton X-114 phase fractionation (K. S. Wise and M. F. Kim, J. Bacteriol. 169:5546-5555, 1987). In the(More)
Mycoplasma flocculare is a commensal or low-virulence pathogen of swine. The complete 778,866-bp genome sequence of M. flocculare strain Ms42(T) has been determined, enabling further comparison to genomes of the closely related pathogen Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae. The absence of the p97 and glpD genes may contribute to the attenuated virulence of M.(More)
Nucleotide sequence analysis of two Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae-derived copies of a repetitive genetic element revealed structural similarities to typical prokaryotic insertion sequences. This is the first such sequence identified in the class Mollicutes. The element spans approximately 1550bp, with 28bp inverted terminal repeats. Two open reading frames occur(More)
