UNLABELLED Although progress in Chlamydia genetics has been rapid, genomic modification has previously been limited to point mutations and group II intron insertions which truncate protein products. The bacterium has thus far been intractable to gene deletion or more-complex genomic integrations such as allelic exchange. Herein, we present a novel suicide(More)
Chlamydia pneumoniae is an obligate intra-cellular parasite which infects mucosal surfaces of the human respiratory tract causing sinusitis, pharyngitis, bronchitis, and pneumonia. Although the bacterium causes acute disease, mildly symptomatic, asymptomatic, or unrecognized infections are most common (Kuo et al., 1995). C. pneumoniae infections are(More)
