Evaluation of growth of avian mycoplasmas on bile salt agar and in bile broth


Majid, M. Shah and Rosendal, S. (1987) Evaluation of growth of avian mycoplasmas on bile salt agar and in bile broth. Research in Veterinary Science, 43 (2). pp. 188-190. ISSN 0034-5288


All nine Mycoplasma iowae strains and one strain of M gallinarum grew on 0.05 per cent 'bile' agar medium. The colony size of M iowae on this agar medium was similar to the size obtained on bile-free mycoplasma agar. One strain each of M maculosum, M arginini and M bovis also grew on 0.05 per cent bile agar. However, one strain each of M gallisepticum and M meleagridis were inhibited at this concentration. Six of the nine strains of M iowae were also resistant to 1 per cent 'bile' in broth medium but all were resistant to 0.5 per cent. The resistance of M iowae to 0.5 per cent 'bile' in broth may be a useful characteristic for differentiating it from some of the other avian mycoplasmas
