Mycoplasma fermentans strains differ in the profile of choline-containing phosphoglycolipids (PGL) present in their cell membrane. MfGL-II [Zähringer et al. (1997) J. Biol. Chem. 272, 26262-26270] was found to be the major PGL in most strains tested. However, in the pulmonary isolates, M52 and M39 the major choline-containing PGLs were MfGL-I [Matsuda et al. (1994) J. Biol. Chem. 269, 33123-33129] and MfEL, a unique choline-containing ether lipid recently identified by us [Wagner et al. (2000… CONTINUE READING
