Table 1 Experimental conditions evaluated

From: The addition of Lactobacillus spp. negatively affects Mycoplasma bovis viability in bovine cervical mucus

Condition Composition M. bovis LAB
1 CM (1460 μL) + MB (40 μL) ☑*
2 CM (1460 μL) + L1 (40 μL)  
3 CM (1000 μL) + L2 (500 μL)  
4 CM (1420 μL) + MB (40 μL) + L1 (40 μL)
5 CM (960 μL) + MB (40 μL) + L2 (500 μL)
6 SP4 (1420 μL) + MB (40 μL) + L1 (40 μL)
7 SP4 (960 μL) + MB (40 μL) + L2 (500 μL)
  1. CM: Cervical mucus. MB: M. bovis. SP4: Specific medium for Mycoplasma spp. isolation (conditions without CM). L1: Lactobacillus spp. at a concentration of 3.24 × 106 UFC/mL. L2: Lactobacillus spp. at a concentration of 3.24 × 108 UFC/mL. LAB: Lactic acid bacteria. ☑: Counts of M. bovis and lactic acid bacteria were made.* Lactic acid bacteria were isolated in the cervical mucus pool. The experimental conditions were prepared following a protocol previously described [25]
