a diagnostic polymerase chain reaction for mycoplasma iowae using primers located in the intergenic spacer region and the 23s rrna gene.mycoplasma iowae is primarily a pathogen of turkeys and, although uncommon, it still persists in some areas of the world, where it may cause embryo mortality and leg lesions. a species-specific diagnostic polymerase chain reaction was developed using a forward primer based in the intergenic spacer region between the 16s rrna and the 23s rrna ribosomal genes and a reverse primer located within the 23s rrna gene. the polymerase chain reaction proved to be both sensitive and specific. it detected m ...201222702460
conserved terminal organelle morphology and function in mycoplasma penetrans and mycoplasma iowae.within the genus mycoplasma are species whose cells have terminal organelles, polarized structures associated with cytadherence and gliding motility. mycoplasma penetrans, found mostly in hiv-infected patients, and mycoplasma iowae, an economically significant poultry pathogen, are members of the mycoplasma muris phylogenetic cluster. both species have terminal organelles that interact with host cells, yet the structures in these species, or any in the m. muris cluster, remain uncharacterized. t ...201222447904
a phylogenetic analysis of the mycoplasmas: basis for their classification.small-subunit rrna sequences were determined for almost 50 species of mycoplasmas and their walled relatives, providing the basis for a phylogenetic systematic analysis of these organisms. five groups of mycoplasmas per se were recognized (provisional names are given): the hominis group (which included species such as mycoplasma hominis, mycoplasma lipophilum, mycoplasma pulmonis, and mycoplasma neurolyticum), the pneumoniae group (which included species such as mycoplasma pneumoniae and mycopla ...19892592342
