What is PPLO Full Form, Meaning, And Definition

The Full Form of PPLO: Pleuro Pneumonia Like organisms

PPLO stands for Pleuro Pneumonia Like organisms. PPLO (Pleuro Pneumonia Like Organisms), also known as Mycoplasma, is considered the smallest free-living cells in the world with a size of 0.1 μm. It was discovered by scientists Nocard and Roux who found it in animals with pleuropneumonia.

They also found that Mycoplasma lacks a cell wall around its cell membrane, making it resistant to antibiotics like penicillin. This is because antibiotics like penicillin target the cell wall of bacteria to kill them. Due to the absence of a cell wall, Mycoplasma has unique properties and requires different treatment methods compared to other bacteria.
