Thirty-six ruminant isolates of Chlamydia psittaci, previously classified as invasive or non-invasive in a mouse model of virulence, were compared by analysing AluI restriction patterns of the major outer-membrane protein (MOMP) gene after DNA amplification by the polymerase chain reaction. The 24 invasive isolates, although from various origins, all belonged to serotype 1 and represented a strictly homogeneous group sharing a specific MOMP-gene restriction pattern that was not observed in the… CONTINUE READING
