In this article we will discuss about structure of mycoplasma
Structure of Mycoplasma
- Lipoprotein membrane: It is outer layer and consists of a combination of lipids and proteins, providing structural support and protection.
- Ribosome: A cellular organelle present in mycoplasma cells responsible for protein synthesis, where mRNA is translated into a specific sequence of amino acids to form a protein.
- DNA: The genetic material within contains the instructions for the cell’s development and functioning, including the synthesis of proteins and the regulation of cellular processes.
- Soluble protein: A protein that is capable of being dissolved in the cytoplasm of the mycoplasma cell, carrying out various functions such as enzymatic activity, signaling, and structural support.
- Soluble RNA: Molecules within the mycoplasma cell that link the genetic information in the form of codons on the mRNA to specific amino acids during protein synthesis, playing a crucial role in the translation process.
