Abstract

Sixty-two cultures representing 59 strains from goats and sheep were purified, biochemically characterized, and serologically identified. All of the strains were identified as belonging to subsp. (Wroblewski) Freundt by the metabolic-inhibition test. The serological reactions of the strains were specific and reproducible, and their biochemical characteristics were identical. The antigenic relationships among the strains investigated, other caprine and ovine mycoplasmas, and subsp. are discussed.
