Changes in membrane lipid composition of Mycoplasma capricolum affect the cell volume

Changes in membrane lipid composition of Mycoplasma capricolum affect the cell volume

Journal of Bacteriology 167(3): 1089-1091

The cellular water volume of Mycoplasma capricolum was markedly increased by a decrease in the cholesterol-to-phospholipid molar ratio in the membrane. An increase in cell volume was also observed with the increase in the phospholipid cell membrane content obtained by the incorporation of exogenous phosphatidylcholine from the growth medium.
