Standard antisera produced in ponies for the identification of bovine mycoplasmas: comparative growth-inhibition results from six laboratories.

Abstract

Antisera to 10 mycoplasma species of bovine origin were produced in 10 ponies and were distributed for evaluation in growth-inhibition tests at 6 laboratories in Australia, England, Denmark, France, and the United States. Except for a few failures with some antigens produced at the 6 laboratories, the antisera induced large zones of growth inhibition in homologous, but not heterologous, systems. These antisera may be useful as standard reagents for the identification of the bovine mycoplasmas.
