In this study, reverse transcriptase PCR was employed to construct a transcriptional profile of Mycoplasma pneumoniae lipoprotein genes contained in six multigene families. Most genes were found to be expressed. Many truncated lipoprotein genes were expressed, often polycistronically with other truncated genes, indicating that these genes may still be functional.
