Abstract

Mycoplasmas are the smallest organisms (200-300nm) that are capable of growth in cell free medium. They are different from bacteria in that they have no cell walls but are bounded by a unite membrane. The typical mycoplasma colony on solid growth medium has the appearance of a "fried egg." Most mycoplasmas require sterol for growth. Nonsterol requiring mycoplasmas are placed into the genus Acholeplasma.
