- Rapid detection of the Chlamydiaceae and other families in the order Chlamydiales: three PCR testsK D Everett
Avian and Swine Respiratory Diseases Research Unit, USDA Agricultural Research Service, National Animal Disease Center, Ames, Iowa 50010, USA
J Clin Microbiol 37:575-80. 1999..These three tests permit ready identification of chlamydiae for diagnostic and epidemiologic study. The specificity of these tests indicates that they might also be used to identify chlamydiae without culture or isolation...
- Emended description of the order Chlamydiales, proposal of Parachlamydiaceae fam. nov. and Simkaniaceae fam. nov., each containing one monotypic genus, revised taxonomy of the family Chlamydiaceae, including a new genus and five new species, and standardsK D Everett
Avian and Swine Respiratory Diseases Research Unit, National Animal Disease Center, US Department of Agriculture, Ames, IA 50010, USA or
Int J Syst Bacteriol 49:415-40. 1999..sp. nov. Emended descriptions for the order Chlamydiales and for the family Chlamydiaceae are provided. These families, genera and species are readily distinguished by analysis of signature sequences in the 16S and 23S ribosomal genes...
- Identification of nine species of the Chlamydiaceae using PCR-RFLPK D Everett
Avian and Swine Respiratory Diseases Research Unit, National Animal Disease Center, US Department of Agriculture, Ames, IA 50010, USA
Int J Syst Bacteriol 49:803-13. 1999..The result was that a PCR method for species identification of chlamydial isolates and for distinguishing mycoplasmas and chlamydiae was created. This method can be used to rapidly identify known species of the family Chlamydiaceae...
- An unspliced group I intron in 23S rRNA links Chlamydiales, chloroplasts, and mitochondriaK D Everett
Avian and Swine Respiratory Diseases Research Unit, National Animal Disease Center, USDA Agricultural Research Service, Ames, Iowa 50010, USA
J Bacteriol 181:4734-40. 1999..The unspliced 658-nt intron is the first group I intron to be found in bacterial rDNA or rRNA, and it may delay the S. negevensis developmental replication cycle by affecting ribosomal function...
- Chlamydia and Chlamydiales: more than meets the eyeK D Everett
Department of Medical Microbiology and Parasitology, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602, USA
Vet Microbiol 75:109-26. 2000..These discoveries create opportunities for veterinarians to carry out epidemiological studies of chlamydiae that previously were not possible...
- The ribosomal intergenic spacer and domain I of the 23S rRNA gene are phylogenetic markers for Chlamydia sppK D Everett
Avian and Swine Respiratory Diseases Research Unit, U S Department of Agriculture, Ames, Iowa 50010, USA
Int J Syst Bacteriol 47:461-73. 1997..DNA sequence analysis of either the intergenic spacer or domain I provides a rapid and reproducible method for identifying, grouping, and classifying chlamydial strains...
