mycoplasma and ureaplasma infections.organisms of the class mollicutes (meaning soft-skin) have regressively evolved, by genome reduction, from gram-positive bacterial ancestors, namely certain clostria (1). the taxonomy of the class mollicutes, containing four orders, five familes, and eight genera, is shown in table 1 (2) the term "mollicute" is sometimes trivially used to describe any organism in the class. the term "mycoplasma" might be used best to describe any member of the genus mycoplasma, but is also used, as in this chapt ...199821390755
enzymic activities of carbohydrate, purine, and pyrimidine metabolism in the anaeroplasmataceae (class mollicutes).cell-free extracts of two strictly anaerobic mollicutes, anaeroplasma intermedium 5la and asteroleplasma anaerobium 161t, were tested for enzymic activities of intracellular carbohydrate metabolism. asteroleplasma anaerobium was also tested for enzymes of purine and pyrimidine metabolism. both organisms had enzymic activities associated with the nonoxidative portion of the pentose phosphate pathway, and with the embden-meyerhoff-parnas pathway. the 6-phosphofructokinase (pfk) of asteroleplasma a ...19892818126
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
