Growth of Parasitic Mycoplasma Without Serum


The basal media employed in Mycoplasma culture are complex, generally containing beef heart infusion, peptones or protein digests, and various sera. In addition, the growth of many species is markedly stimulated by hydrolysates and extracts of yeast. Previous investigations (H. Kurzepa and P. J. VanDemark, Bacteriol. Proc., p. 123, 1967) revealed that the growth stimulatory substances in yeast extract were lipids. Further investigations have identified these growth stimulatory materials
