The 7.5-kb plasmid of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) is believed to encode essential genes and might have a role in CT pathogenicity. Accordingly, analysis of plasmid-linked mutations in isolates from biovars with different pathogenic properties should help in identifying which plasmid-encoded genes, if any, may be involved in modulating virulence. For this… CONTINUE READING
