proposal that the strains of the mycoplasma ovine/caprine serogroup 11 be reclassified as mycoplasma bovigenitalium.this proposal is our response to the recommendation of the international committee on systematics of prokaryotes (subcommittee on the taxonomy of mollicutes) that we 'write a proposal to classify mycoplasma bovigenitalium and ovine/caprine serogroup 11 as a single species'. physiological and phylogenetic comparisons between 27 strains of m. bovigenitalium and mycoplasma serogroup 11 showed that (i) growth and patterns of organic acid substrate use completely overlapped among strains; (ii) all ha ...200818175727
mycoplasma species and related organisms isolated from ruminants in britain between 1990 and 2000.between 1990 and 2000, more than 1600 mycoplasmas and the related acholeplasmas were identified from ruminant animals by the mycoplasma group at the veterinary laboratories agency--weybridge. mycoplasma bovis was the most commonly identified pathogen, mostly from pneumonic calves but occasionally from cattle with mastitis and arthritis. mycoplasma canis was first isolated in britain in 1995 from pneumonic calves and the number of isolates increased to 18 per cent of the total mycoplasmas isolate ...200415508840
characterisation of mycoplasmas isolated from genital tract infections of sheep in nigeria.four mycoplasma-like organisms isolated from ewes with mucopurulent vaginal discharge and swollen vulva were characterised. biochemical tests showed three of the isolates to be negative for glucose fermentation and arginine hydrolysis, while the remaining isolate was negative for glucose fermentation but hydrolysed arginine. serological identification using the growth inhibition, growth precipitation and indirect immunofluorescence tests indicated the three similar isolates as mycoplasma bovigen ...19958593416
close genetic and phenotypic relatedness between mycoplasma ovine/caprine serogroup 11 and mycoplasma bovigenitalium.strains of mycoplasma ovine/caprine serogroup 11, isolated from infertile sheep, were compared to the type strain, 2d, and to strains of the cattle pathogen m. bovigenitalium, including the type strain, pg11. examination of these strains by growth inhibition and immune fluorescence tests showed strong serological cross reactivity between m. serogroup 11 and m. bovigenitalium but not with other ruminant mycoplasmas. substrate oxidation and growth studies did not show any consistent differences be ...200212421077
experimental mastitis caused by mycoplasma bovigenitalium and m. canadense in the ewe.twelve strains of m. bovigenitalium and two of three strains of m. canadense caused an infection resulting in a pathogenic effect when experimentally inoculated into the ovine mammary gland. differences in the pathogenesis were quantified by the duration of continuous mycoplasma excretion and the duration of high milk cell levels, but variation in the susceptability of the experimental animals prevented the establishment of firm conclusions on the relative virulence of the strains. seven m. bovi ...19902363246
biochemical characterisation of some non fermenting, non arginine hydrolysing mycoplasmas of ruminants.the pattern and kinetics of substrate oxidation by type and recent field strains of mycoplasma agalactiae, mycoplasma bovis, mycoplasma bovigenitalium and mycoplasma ovine/caprine serogroup 11 were investigated by measurement of oxygen uptake. metabolism of a range of organic acids, sugars and alcohols was detected. all the test strains were unable to oxidise sugars, glycerol and the organic acids, fumarate, malate and alpha-ketoglutarate (1 mm). all strains oxidised organic acid l-lactate, 2-ox ...200515975741
