Nonspecific vaginitis. Diagnostic criteria and microbial and epidemiologic associations.
The rpoN gene product of Pseudomonas aeruginosa is required for expression of diverse genes, including the flagellin gene
Findings indicate that the sigma factor encoded by the rpoN gene is used by P. aeruginosa for transcription of a diverse set of genes that specify biosynthetic enzymes, degradative enzymes, and surface components, which include pili and flagella which are required for full virulence of the organism.
Diagnostic Criteria and Microbial and Epidemiologic Associations
Mycoplasma genitalium among young adults in the United States: an emerging sexually transmitted infection.

M genitalium was more prevalent than Neisseria gonorrhoeae but less prevalent than Chlamydia trachomatis, and it was strongly associated with sexual activity.

A simple and reproducible scheme for identifying biotypes of Gardnerella vaginalis has been developed, based on reactions for lipase, hippurate hydrolysis, and beta-galactosidase, and there were no differences between strains isolated from patients with and without bacterial vaginosis (nonspecific vaginitis).
Failure of cefoxitin and doxycycline to eradicate endometrial Mycoplasma genitalium and the consequence for clinical cure of pelvic inflammatory disease
M genitalium is associated with endometritis and short-term PID treatment failure and cefoxitin and doxycycline, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended PID treatment regimen, is ineffective for the treatment of M genitalium upper genital tract infection.
Characterization of the type a flagellin gene from Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAK
Comparison of the deduced amino acid sequence of this gene with the amino acid sequences of other flagellins revealed a conservation in the N- and C-terminal domains, suggesting conservation of secretion or assembly signals between these organisms.
mgpB and mgpC sequence diversity in Mycoplasma genitalium is generated by segmental reciprocal recombination with repetitive chromosomal sequences

It is shown that mgpC heterogeneity similarly occurs within the type strain, G‐37T, cultured in vitro and among cervical specimens collected from a persistently infected woman, and is indicative of recombination with MgPar regions.
Mucopurulent cervicitis and Mycoplasma genitalium.
Young age, multiple recent partners, prior miscarriage, smoking, menstrual cycle, and douching were positively associated with M. genitalium, whereas bacterial vaginosis and cunnilingus were negatively associated, suggesting that this organism may be a cause of MPC.
