Abstract

The electrical properties of the pleuropneumonia-like organism A 5969 have been determined over the frequency range from 0.5 to 250 Mcps. The frequency dependence of the dielectric constant and conductivity of PPLO suspensions is completely consistent with the existence of a membrane. The PPLO has an internal conductance which in part reflects its ionic equilibrium with normal nutrient and macromolecular constituents. But it is fairly independent from variation in external ionic strength.
