About this work

Also known as

Mycoplasma hominis (Mycoplasmataceae) - Vermehrung


The film shows several, but not all, forms of multiplication of Mycoplasma hominis, growing in liquid medium on a glass surface. Small ring- or disc-shaped cells change their shape repeatedly, forming segmented structures and then switching back to the ring form. Short filaments are forming spoon-like structures, whcih after several cycles eventually are fragmenting into coccoid forms. Occasionally from such spoons new cells separate in a budding-like process. In the second part growth and fragmentation of long filaments are demonstrated, simple division is not shown in this film.
