detection of cholesterol in cell membranes by use of bacterial toxins.a method is described for the detection of cholesterol in membranes from erythrocytes, mycoplasmas, and bacterial cells by a ferritin-labeling technique. membranes treated with cereolysin, a bacterial hemolysin which specifically binds to cholesterol, and then treated with ferritin-antitetanolysin, were specifically ferritin-labeled for cholesterol. a similar antigen-antibody system, streptolysin o-ferritin-antistreptolysin, was also used successfully with erythrocyte membranes. there was an une ...19724623312

distribution of a phosphoenolypyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system in mycoplasms.a survey of 10 mycoplasma strains has shown that their capacity to accumulate radioactivity from alpha-methyl-d-glucopyranoside depends on the activity of a phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system (pts), and that this system endows the organisms with a high affinity for glucose as a fermentation substrate. pts activity was found in mycoplasma gallisepticum, m. mycoides var. mycoides, and m. mycoides var. capri, but in none of the fermentative acholeplasma strains nor in some of t ...19734688137

deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis in synchronously growing mycoplasma gallisepticum.early log-phase cells of mycoplasma gallisepticum a5969 were synchronized by holding in eagle minimal essential medium (mem) for 2 h. when transferred out of mem into tryptose medium, the cells exhibited synchronous growth. deoxyribonucleic acid (dna) synthesis proceeded continuously during this growth but stopped during the period of cell division. one round of dna replication was observed per cell doubling, and a unique region of dna was found to be permanently bound to the membrane.19734717510
