Abstract

The properties of representative strains of various swine Mycoplasma and Acholeplasma species were compared by standard methods. The following biochemical properties were found to serve as important criteria of species differentiation: cholesterol requirement, sensitivity to sodium polyanethol sulphonate and digitonin, decomposition of glucose, arginine, aesculin, galactose and xylose, phosphatase activity, film and spot formation, and resistance to sodium chloride, sodium azide, pH 5.5 and 9.5, Tween 80 and erythromycin. A correlation was demonstrated between changes of the pH of medium and the number of colony forming units in the cultures; this correlation should be taken into consideration at the propagation and transfer of the strains.
