Bacteria of the class Mollicutes have no cell wall. One species, Mycoplasma genitalium is the personification of the simplest form of independent cell-free life. Its small genome (580 kbp) is the smallest of any cell. Mollicutes have unique metabolic properties, perhaps because of their limited coding space and high mutability. Based on 16S rRNA analyses the Mollicutes Mycoplasma gallisepticum is thought to be the most mutable bacteria. Enzyme activities found in most Bacteria are absent from… Expand
