University of South Carolina School of Medicine: Gene Mayer's "Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma"

Read this chapter, which covers Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma. All Mycoplasma species lack a cell wall. Because they lack a cell wall, they are unaffected by many antibiotics (such as penicillin) that destroy bacteria by targeting cell walls. Take advantage of the PowerPoint lecture slides as you study.
