Abstract

A mycoplasma isolated from human spermatozoa and a human cervix was shown to be serologically distinct from 98 previously recognized and spp. Six mycoplasma colonies were cloned and examined in detail for morphology, growth, and biochemical characteristics; five of these were from sperm samples and one was from a cervix. These strains were closely related and had the following properties: Guanine-plus-cytosine content of 32 mol%, requirement for sterol, and anaerobic growth. Glucose was not metabolized, and arginine and urea were not hydrolyzed. Strain AH159 (= NCTC 11720) is the type strain of a new species, .
