  • 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.
