Host Lineage: Mycoplasma agalactiae; Mycoplasma; Mycoplasmataceae; Mycoplasmatales; Tenericutes; Bacteria
General Information: Mycoplasma agalactiae causes mastitis (infection of the mammary glands), arthritis, and pneumonia in sheep and goats. Asymptomatic animals can carry and spread the disease, making detection and erradication difficult. This disease is widespread in the Mediterranean and is of considerable economic importance, causing decreased yields of milk, and mortality or slowed growth of kids and lambs.
