Development of a Plasmid Shuttle Vector System for Genetic Manipulation of Chlamydia psittaci

The obligate intracellular bacterium Chlamydia psittaci is a recognized avian pathogen inflicting psittacosis in birds and is able to zoonotic transmission. In human pulmonary infections, C. psittaci could cause pneumonia related to important mortality if inadequately recognized and handled. Though intracellular C. psittaci manipulates host cell organelles for its replication and survival, it has been troublesome to show host-pathogen interactions in C. […]
