A novel mycoplasmal species designated as Mycoplasma penetrans has recently been isolated from patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus. The 16S rRNA gene from this mycoplasma was cloned and its nucleotide sequence determined. This sequence was aligned with previously published homologous sequences from several mycoplasmas and with related Gram-positive bacteria and a phylogenetic tree was constructed. The results indicate that M. penetrans belongs to the evolutionary group Pneumoniae.
