Mycoplasma and Acholeplasma reference strains of bovine origin were tested in growth inhibition and metabolic inhibition tests. Two way cross reaction was demonstrated between serogroup 7 PG50 (Leach) and serogroup L B 144 P(Al-Aubaidi) in metabolic inhibition and one way cross reaction in growth inhibition. Metabolic activity of M. agalactiae subsp. agalactiae (PG2) was inhibited by M. agalactiae subsp. bovis (Donetta) antisera. Serogroups designated H, I and K (Al Aubaidi) showed significant 2 way cross reactions in both tests with M. gateae, M. gallinarum and A. axanthum species.
