Abstract

Genomic DNA sequence data for the 16S rRNA gene and the gyrB gene of Mesoplasma pleciae PS-1(T) (=ATCC 49582(T)=NBRC 100476(T)) demonstrate a much closer relationship to Acholeplasma laidlawii and Acholeplasma oculi than to other species in the order Entomoplasmatales. In addition, the preferred use of UGG rather than UGA as the codon for tryptophan in the gyrB sequence probably places the organism outside the order Entomoplasmatales. It is proposed that M. pleciae be reclassified in the genus Acholeplasma, as Acholeplasma pleciae comb. nov.
