Abstract

Ninety-five strains of Mycoplasma were isolated from human saliva; all were micro-aerophilic; 72 were actively lipolytic and 23 were non-lipolytic and were inhibited by Tweens. A type culture of human type 4 () was culturally identical with the lipolytic strains, and two type cultures of with the non-lipolytic strains. The strains serologically identifiable as were non-lipolytic, whereas those identifiable as were of both types. Comparison was also made with type strains from other sources. Those of human origin were non-lipolytic and those of saprophytic or animal origin were slightly lipolytic.
