Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoidesSC (MmymySC)is the etiological agent of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP), a highly contagious respiratory disease in cattle. The genome of Mmymy SC type strain PG1(T) has been sequenced to map all the genes and to facilitate further studies regarding the cell function of the organism and CBPP. The genome is characterized by a single circular chromosome of 1211703 bp with the lowest G+C content (24 mole%)and the highest density of insertion sequences… Expand
Genotyping of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides SC by multilocus sequence analysis allows molecular epidemiology of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia.
TLDR
Cluster analysis confirmed that European strains from the 1990s did not originate from Africa and showed a genetic link between a European strain isolated in 1967 and those found in southern Africa and Australia, in agreement with historical data showing that CBPP was introduced in these regions during colonisation in the 19th century.

Swine and Poultry Pathogens: the Complete Genome Sequences of Two Strains of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and a Strain of Mycoplasma synoviae
TLDR
Genomic comparisons revealed that reduction in genome size implied loss of redundant metabolic pathways, with maintenance of alternative routes in different species, and indicated a likely transfer event of hemagglutinin-coding DNA sequences from M. gallisepticum to M. synoviae. Expand
Mycoplasma mycoides, from "mycoides Small Colony" to "capri". A microevolutionary perspective
TLDR
The genome of MmmSC PG1 is larger than that of Mmc 95010, its very close relative, but has less coding capacity, which is consistent with a non-adaptative genomic complexity theory, allowing duplications or pseudogenes to be maintained in the absence of adaptive selection. Expand
Characterization of the in vitro core surface proteome of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides, the causative agent of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia.
TLDR
The data generated will facilitate the identification and prioritization of candidate Mycoplasma antigens for improved control measures, as it is likely that surface-exposed membrane proteins will include those that are involved in host-pathogen interactions. Expand
Unmarked insertional mutagenesis in the bovine pathogen Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides SC: characterization of a lppQ mutant.
TLDR
This study has developed a transposon-based approach for the random mutagenesis of M. mycoides SC, and isolated a mutant free of antibiotic-resistance genes, in which the gene encoding the main lipoprotein LppQ was disrupted. Expand
Variability of a glucose phosphotransferase system permease in Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides Small Colony.
TLDR
DNA analysis revealed that ON/OFF switching is governed by a base substitution occurring upstream of the coding region for the 3F3 epitope, which generates a stop codon that results in the premature termination of the PtsG protein. Expand
The Complete Genome Sequence of Mycoplasma bovis Strain Hubei-1
TLDR
The finished and annotated genome sequence of M. bovis strain Hubei-1, a strain isolated in 2008 that caused calf pneumonia on a Chinese farm, is reported and it is reported that 47 lipoproteins, 12 extracellular proteins and 18 transmembrane proteins are phase-variable and may help M.bovis escape the immune response.

Comparative genomics analysis of Mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae 87001.
TLDR
The complete annotated genome sequence of Mccp Strain 87001-a strain that was isolated from pneumonia affected goats on a farm in China is presented, and comparative genomics analysis of five MCCp genomes in addition to comparative Genomics within Mycoplasma mycoides cluster are revealed. Expand
Proteomic Characterisation of Two Strains of Mycoplasma mycoides Subsp.Mycoides of Differing Pathogenicity
TLDR
This study represents the most extensive proteomics characterization of Mmm to date and has identified characteristics on which to base future studies of the physiology and pathogenicity of this prokaryote. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of pathogenicity of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides SC
TLDR
This strategy enables the mycoplasma to exploit the minimal genetic information in its small genome, not only to fulfil the basic functions for its replication but also to damage host cells in intimate proximity thereby acquiring the necessary bio-molecules, such as amino acids and nucleic acid precursors, for its own biosynthesis and survival.

TLDR
Surprisingly, several of the genes previously reported to be essential for a self-replicating minimal cell are missing in the M.pulmonis genome although this one is larger than the other mycoplasma genomes fully sequenced until now. Expand

The complete genomic sequence of Mycoplasma penetrans, an intracellular bacterial pathogen in humans.
TLDR
The genetic tree of p35 paralogs suggests the occurrence of dynamic chromosomal rearrangement in paralog formation during evolution during evolution, suggesting that M.penetrans HF-2 may have acquired diverse repertoires of antigenic variation-related genes to allow its persistent infection in humans.

Phylogeny of the Mycoplasma mycoides cluster as determined by sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA genes from the two rRNA operons
TLDR
It is suggested that these species be reclassified in a common species group (for instance, "Mycoplasma capri") distinct from the M. capricolum species group. Expand
Variable Surface Protein Vmm of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides Small Colony Type
TLDR
Vmm could not be detected in whole-cell lysates of these species, suggesting that the proteins encoded by the vmm-like genes lack the binding epitope for the monoclonal antibody used in this study or, alternatively, that the Vmm- like proteins were not expressed. Expand

TLDR
With the availability of rapid, reliable and economical tests for biovar determination, it is now appropriate to propose that the taxonomic status of U. urealyticum be emended. Expand
Genome sequence of Yersinia pestis, the causative agent of plague
TLDR
The evidence of ongoing genome fluidity, expansion and decay suggests Y. pestis is a pathogen that has undergone large-scale genetic flux and provides a unique insight into the ways in which new and highly virulent pathogens evolve. Expand
