Current methods used to classify Chlamydia strains, including biological, morphological, and DNA hybridization techniques and major outer membrane protein (omp1) gene analysis, can be imprecise or difficult to perform. To facilitate classification, 2.8-kb partial ribosomal DNA (rDNA) segments from a Chlamydia trachomatis strain and a Chlamydia psittaci strain were amplified by PCR and sequenced. Subsequently, a 1,320-bp region in this segment, including both the 16S/23S intergenic spacer (232… CONTINUE READING
