Acholeplasma laidlawii (strain PG-8A)

General information

Species:  Acholeplasma laidlawii (strain PG-8A)
Species code: ACHLI
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Tenericutes; Mollicutes; Acholeplasmatales; Acholeplasmataceae; Acholeplasma (TaxID: 441768) [NEWT/ NCBI]
Description: Acholeplasma laidlawii is found in soil, compost, wastewaters, cell cultures as well as in human tissues and in many animal species (birds, bovine, goat, equine, ovine, porcine, feline, rodent, primates). Acholeplasma species are capable of de novo biosynthesis of carotenoids localized exclusively in the cell membrane. Acholeplasma laidlawii is capable of synthesizing glucose using a pyrophosphate-dependent 6-phosphofructokinase which has also been detected in other acholeplasmas. Acholeplasma laidlawii and phytoplasmas are the only mollicutes known to use the universal genetic code, in which UGA is a stop codon.
Properties: Presence of flagella: No
Human pathogen: No
Interaction: No
Number of membranes: 1
