Query: NC_010503:267924 Ureaplasma parvum serovar 3 str. ATCC 27815 chromosome, complete Lineage: Ureaplasma parvum; Ureaplasma; Mycoplasmataceae; Mycoplasmatales; Tenericutes; Bacteria General Information: This organism (Ureaplasma urealyticum biovar 1) is normally found as a commensal organism in the human genital tract. As an opportunistic pathogen, it can cause a sexually-transmitted disease and is recognized as causing non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis. It can also cause obstetric complications in pregnant women, severe infections in infants, as well as meningitis. Like other Mollicutes, it is a wall-less bacterium and has undergone marked genome reduction. This organism appears to generate ATP through the hydrolysis of urea by the urease enzyme.

General Information: Mycoplasma hyorhinis HUB-1 was isolate from the respiratory tract of swine. Mycoplasma hyorhinis, though generally considered being a swine pathogen, is found most commonly infecting laboratory cell lines including human cells. Recently, an increasing body of work suggests that chronic infections of M. hyorhinis may cause oncogenic transformation. Infection with mycoplasma is a common problem in cell cultures, with Mycoplasma hyorhinis being the predominant species.
