Detection and differentiation of Chlamydia trachomatis, Chlamydia psittaci, and Chlamydia pneumoniae by DNA amplification.


The polymerase chain reaction was used to detect major outer membrane protein (MOMP) gene sequences from the three species of Chlamydia. Using three primer pairs and one restriction enzyme digestion, three distinct genotypes, corresponding to the three species, Chlamydia trachomatis, Chlamydia pneumoniae, and Chlamydia psittaci, were demonstrated.
