Accession numbers NC_005861
Background Candidatus Protochlamydia amoebophila UWE25. An endosymbiont of free-living amoebae (Acanthamoeba sp. endosymbiont UWE25) and implicated as a potential human pathogen this strain is an environmental isolate. Its genome size is approximately twice as large as other pathogenic species belonging to the Chlamydiaceae family. (NCBI BioProject: bp_list[1])
