Cell extracts of the fermentative Mollicutes Acholeplasma laidlawii B-PG9, Acholeplasma morum S2, Mycoplasma capricolum 14, Mycoplasma gallisepticum S6, Mycoplasma pneumoniae FH, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae J and M. genitalium G-37, and the non-fermentative Mycoplasma hominis PG-21, Mycoplasma hominis 1620 and Mycoplasma bovigenitalium PG-11 were examined for 39 cytoplasmic enzyme activities associated with the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, transamination, anaplerotic reactions and other enzyme… Expand
Comparative metabolism of Mesoplasma, Entomoplasma, Mycoplasma, and Acholeplasma.
TLDR
A preliminary scheme for distinguishing genera of the class Mollicutes on the basis of the results of signature functional enzyme assays is constructed, which includes phylogenetic relationships deduced from rRNA analyses, but is more informative with respect to metabolic potential. Expand
Metabolism of Mollicutes: the Embden—Meyerhof—Parnas Pathway and the Hexose Monophosphate Shunt
TLDR
It is believed that the three major observations of this study are: all Mycoplasma spp. Expand
Physiology of the wall-less Anaeroplasmataceae (Class Mollicutes) and related walled bacteria
Cell-free extracts of two strictly anaerobic molllcutes, Anaeroplasma intermedium SLA and Asteroleplasma anaerobium 161?, were tested for enzymic activities of Intracellular carbohydrate metabolism.Expand
Enzymic activities of carbohydrate, purine, and pyrimidine metabolism in the Anaeroplasmataceae (class Mollicutes)
Cell-free extracts of two strictly anaerobic mollicutes, Anaeroplasma intermedium 5LA and Asteroleplasma anaerobium 161T, were tested for enzymic activities of intracellular carbohydrate metabolism.Expand
Metabolism of members of the Spiroplasmataceae
TLDR
Assays indicate that the members of the Spiroplasmataceae are essentially metabolically homogeneous in the highly conserved pathways which the authors studied, but differ from other mollicutes in several important respects. Expand
RESEARCH L ETTER - Pathogens & Pathogenicity Characterization of triosephosphate isomerase from Mycoplasma gallisepticum
TLDR
The results of the study suggested that MGTpiA plays an important role in the metabolism and closely related to the M. gallisepticum pathogenicity. Expand
The Anaplerotic Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxylase of the Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle Deficient Acholeplusmu lar ’ dlawt ’ i BPG

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (EC 4.1.1.3 1) (PEP-C) was purified approximately 770-fold from the mollicute Acholeplasma laidlawii B-PG9. The partially purified PEP-C required phosphoenolpyruvateExpand

The small genome size of mollicutes, and particularly mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas, precludes their possession of the extensive range of metabolic activities present in most other bacterial groups.Expand
Characterization of triosephosphate isomerase from Mycoplasma gallisepticum.
TLDR
The results of the study suggested that MGTpiA plays an important role in the metabolism and closely related to the M. gallisepticum pathogenicity. Expand
Malate/lactate dehydrogenase in mollicutes: evidence for a multienzyme protein.
TLDR
The closely related helical Mollicute, Spiroplasma melliferum, was shown to possess two distinct gene products for MDH/LDH activity, and a unique LDH is described which probably also confers MDH activity within the 580 kbp genome of Mycoplasma genitalium. Expand

EVIDENCE FOR A TRICARBOXYLIC ACID CYCLE IN MYCOPLASMA HOMINIS
TLDR
Resting cells of acetate-grown Mycoplasma hominis strain 07 oxidized the various intermediates of the tricarboxylic and glyoxylate cycles, with the exception of sodium citrate and gly oxylate. Expand
Synthesis of adenylate nucleotides by Mollicutes (mycoplasmas).
TLDR
The Mollicutes were relatively energy deficient during their mid-exponential growth phase, and the diminished metabolic capacity may be related to the association of Mollsicutes with living cells and perhaps to the cytopathic effects of these micro-organisms. Expand
Synthesis of adenylate nucleotides by Mollicutes (mycoplasmas).
TLDR
Cultures of the Mollicutes, representing four metabolic groups, were sampled at intervals over a 40 to 50 h period and assayed for the numbers of c.f.u., changes in pH and glucose concentration, and concentrations of ATP, ADP, AMP, lactate and pyruvate. Expand

TLDR
It is postulate that pyruvate is removed preferentially by the pyruvic oxidase system and is not available for reduction to lactate, and that there is no alternative mechanism for the reoxidation of reduced DPN (DPNH). Expand
Effect of mycoplasma infection on pyruvate dehydrogenase complex activity of normal and pyruvate dehydrogenase complex-deficient fibroblasts.
TLDR
Infection of normal and PDHC-deficient fibroblasts with these mycoplasma species resulted in a marked increase of the specific activity of these two enzymes, and under certain conditions could conceal the enzymatic defect. Expand
Respiration-associated components of Mollicutes
TLDR
The data suggest that, as Mollicutes lack cytochrome pigments, they would synthesize most if not all adenosine triphosphate at the substrate level. Expand
Fumarate reduction and product formation by the Reiter strain of Treponema phagedenis
TLDR
The catabolic pathways for butyrate, acetate, succinate, and ethanol formation by the Reiter strain of Treponema phagedenis were investigated and a membrane-associated fumarate reductase was found which utilized reduced ferredoxin or flavin nucleotides as physiological electron donors. Expand
GLUCOSE METABOLISM OF TWO STRAINS OF MYCOPLASMA LAIDLAWII
TLDR
Enzyme studies added support to the hypothesis that glycolysis is operative in these organisms, and suggested that the hexose monophosphate shunt may be functional in M. laidlawii (Adler), particularly since glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, ribose-5- phosphate isomerase, and transketolase were demonstrated.
