People had been trying for about 50 years to identify peptidoglycan in Chlamydiae
but had failed even though there was a lot of indirect evidence pointing to its existence," notes Kuru.
Being an intracellular pathogen, chlamydiae
possess little intrinsic toxicity (Debattista 2003).
We are convinced that with Wyeth-Lederle Vaccines' world-class expertise in the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative vaccines, they will best utilize the high quality and comprehensive genomic information we have generated to rapidly develop and market new Chlamydiae
The course of infection was monitored by cervico-vaginal swabbing and chlamydiae
were isolated in tissue culture and enumerated using immunofluorescence.
Direct identification of chlamydiae
from clinical samples using a DNA microarray assay: a validation study.
Birds with subclinical infections can shed chlamydiae
intermittently over long periods, contributing to the dissemination of the agent.
Following are 100 contributed chapters arranged in sections on actinobacteria; fermicutes; tenericutes; bacteroidetes, chlamydiae
, and fusobacteria; proteobacteria; spirochaetes; and pan-bacterial detection.
(with phages), mycoplasmas, and Rickettsiae in Chesapeake Bay bivalves.
We hypothesized that mice immunized with MOMP expressed by Vibrio cholerae ghosts will have a decreased shedding of chlamydiae
in the genital tract as compared to nonimmunized mice.
in free-ranging and captive frogs in Switzerland.
The isolated pathogen was able to grow in specific-pathogen-free (SPF) chicken embryos and McCoy cell lines and was identified as Chlamydiae
by immunofluorescence assay and PCR.
In the primary infection, the intensity of the disease (measured by shedding of chlamydiae
in the genital tract) was comparable during the first 3 weeks after infection in both FcR-KO and control mice.
are obligate intracellular organisms with a biphasic life cycle.
Phylogenetic analysis of the outer-membrane-protein genes of chlamydiae
, and its implication for vaccine development.
