Chlamydia are absolute pathogens of humans and animals; despite being rather well recognised, they are still open for discovery. One such discovery is the occurrence of extrachromosomal carriers of genetic information. In prokaryotes, such carriers include plasmids and bacteriophages, which are present only among some Chlamydia species. Plasmids were found(More)
Bacteria from the Chlamydiales order have been long known, especially as pathogenic bacteria to humans and many animal species, principally including birds and mammals. But for slightly over 20 years, they have been identified in the aquatic environment as endosymbionts of amoebas and sea worms. For several years, they have also been recorded as a cause of(More)
Chlamydiae are bacteria commonly found in the environment of human life and they cause many diseases. Chlamydial infections are common among men and women, although they are more often diagnosed in women and they are frequently asymptomatic, due to the biology of chlamydiae. Incorrectly diagnosed and untreated, they cause many complications which can lead(More)
Pathogenic bacteria cause many diseases, some of which are fatal. For researchers, it is a challenge to understand bacterial mechanisms of pathogenicity, including their virulence pathways regulated by RNA. This work presents data on the mechanisms of regulation and expression of several virulence factors coded by RNA, namely 5' UTR fragments, riboswitches(More)
