|Etymology:||Genus name: a cloac. |
Species epithet: of a pig.
|Significance:||[Of minor importance]|
|Type Strain:||S45 = ATCC VR-1474.|
|Micromorphology:||Utanför värdcellen: infektiösa elementarkroppar (0,2-0,3 µm).
I värdcellen: icke-infektiösa retikulärkroppar (0,8-1,0 µm). C. trachomatis är orörlig.
|Gram +/Gram -:||G-, difficult to gram stain.|
|Metabolism:||Aerobic, but members of the family Chlamydiaceae have only limited resources to to synthesize their own ATP. Therefore, they can ingest ATP from the host cell.|
|16S rRNA Seq.:|
||Species within the family Chlamydiaceae were previously (1999) divided into two genera Chlamydia and Chlamydophila. However, the differences between these two genera were not that great and many research groups have not accepted this division. Therefore, the genus Chlamydophila has been returned (2015) to the genus Chlamydia. See the references below.|
|Comment:||Strictly intracellular. The cell envelope contains cystein rich proteins and only a small amount of peptidoglycans.|
|Reference(s):||No. 68, 140, 177|
