Chlamydia


Pospischil, A; Borel, N; Andersen, A A (2010). Chlamydia. In: Carlton, L G; Prescott, J F; Songer, G; Thoen, C O. Pathogenesis of Bacterial Infections in Animals. Ames, Iowa, USA: Wiley-Blackwell, 575-587.

Abstract

Chlamydiae are gram-negative, obligate intracellular bacteria with a unique developmental cycle, consisting of the elementary body (EB), the condensed infectious form, and the reticulate body (RB), the larger replicating form. They infect a broad range of species, including humans, and are widespread in nature. Chlamydiae cause economically important diseases in farm animals, including ocular, pulmonary, genital, articular, and intestinal infections; these are often persistent, chronic, or subclinical, and are difficult to diagnose and treat. Chlamydiae depend on host cells for multiplication.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
