Representative species of the Mollicutes possess a thioredoxin reductase system (NTS) composed of a low-molecular-mass thioredoxin (TRX) and NADPH-binding thioredoxin reductase (NTR). The TRXs of Mycoplasma pneumoniae and M. capricolum have molecular masses of 11-2 and 12 kDa, respectively, and are stable at 90 degree C for 10 min. Both TRXs reacted with monospecific polyclonal antibodies generated against the Bacillus subtilis TRX, but not with anti-Escherichia coli TRX antisera. The M… CONTINUE READING
