Candidatus Syngnamydia Venezia, a novel member of the Phylum Chlamydiae from the Broad Nosed Pipefish, Syngnathus typhle


Fehr, A; Walther, E; Schmidt-Posthaus, H; Nufer, L; Wilson, A; Svercel, M; Richter, D; Segner, H; Pospischil, A; Vaughan, L (2013). Candidatus Syngnamydia Venezia, a novel member of the Phylum Chlamydiae from the Broad Nosed Pipefish, Syngnathus typhle. PLoS ONE, 8(8):e70853.

Abstract

Chlamydia are obligate intracellular bacteria and important pathogens of humans and animals. Chlamydia-related bacteria are also major fish pathogens, infecting epithelial cells of the gills and skin to cause the disease epitheliocystis. Given the wide distribution, ancient origins and spectacular diversity of bony fishes, this group offers a rich resource for the identification and isolation of novel Chlamydia. The broad-nosed pipefish (Syngnathus typhle) is a widely distributed and genetically diverse temperate fish species, susceptible to epitheliocystis across much of its range. We describe here a new bacterial species, Candidatus Syngnamydia venezia; epitheliocystis agent of S. typhle and close relative to other chlamydial pathogens which are known to infect diverse hosts ranging from invertebrates to humans.
