Chlamydia muridarum Nigg

Names Chlamydia muridarum Nigg
Accession numbers NC_002182, NC_002620
Background The murine origin of this stock was isolated from the lungs of an albino mouse of Swiss line not presenting a respiratory disorder. Experiment showed that infections could have a pathogenic capacity. The stock isolated from the hamster originates in the intestine of an animal presenting proliferative ileitis (inflammation of the ileum). The mouse bacterium was isolated from the lungs of an albino mouse that did not have a respiratory disorder, but the bacterium was later shown to be capable of causing disease.The practical importance of Chlamydia muridarum for the breeding of rodents for laboratory use seems very low.(From (BacMap)
