Mycoplasma (C0026934)

Definition (NCI) A genus of nonmotile facultatively anaerobic bacteria that lack a true cell wall, are gram-negative, and require sterol for growth.
Definition (NCI_CDISC) Any bacteria that is not assigned to the species level but can be assigned to the Mycoplasma genus level.
Definition (MSH) A genus of gram-negative, mostly facultatively anaerobic bacteria in the family MYCOPLASMATACEAE. The cells are bounded by a PLASMA MEMBRANE and lack a true CELL WALL. Its organisms are pathogens found on the MUCOUS MEMBRANES of humans, ANIMALS, and BIRDS.
Definition (CSP) genus of gram negative, mostly facultatively anaerobic bacteria in the family Mycoplasmataceae; the cells are bounded by a plasma membrane and lack a true cell wall; its organisms are pathogens found on the mucous membranes of humans, animals, and birds.
