Isolation and characterization of Mycoplasma meleagridis

, : Isolation and characterization of Mycoplasma meleagridis. Canadian Journal of Microbiology 18(2): 127-135

The ability of M. meleagridis to metabolize L-arginine hydrochloride and its inability to ferment dextrose can be used in identifying and differentiating this serotype from other mycoplasms known to infect turkeys. M. meleagridis may be the only species of turkey origin which lacks the ability to reduce tetrazolium chloride. A selective inhibitory effect of erythromycin and oleandomycin on M. gallisepticum can be used to differentiate it from M. meleagradis.

Probiotics and prebiotics, alone or together (synbiotics), can influence the intestinal microbiota and modulate the immune response. They may therefore be tools that can prevent or alleviate certain pathologies involving the gut immune system, suc...

The use of guinea pigs as a laboratory model was proven to be appropriate in investigating the vaccines developed against Lassa fever at the preclinical study stage. An adapted variant of Lassa virus was cultivated, which caused death of guinea pi...
