Abstract

SUMMARY: Various Mycoplasma strains were found to differ in their sensitivity to osmotic lysis. Three strains of the saprophytic and a strain of the parasitic were readily lysed in media of low tonicity. Strains of the parasitic var. var. and were to a great extent resistant to osmotic lysis. The sensitivity of and to osmotic lysis markedly decreased with ageing of the organisms. was more sensitive to lysis when grown in cholesterol-free media.
