Genome sequence of the zoonotic pathogen Chlamydophila psittaci
Journal of Bacteriology , Volume 193 - Issue 5 p. 1282- 1283
We present the first genome sequence of Chlamydophila psittaci, an intracellular pathogen of birds and a human zoonotic pathogen. A comparison with previously sequenced Chlamydophila genomes shows that, as in other chlamydiae, most of the genome diversity is restricted to the plasticity zone. The C. psittaci plasmid was also sequenced.
