Chlamydia felis, C. psittaci, and C. abortus
The Chl3Sp dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of 3 species of Chlamydophila spp. (C.felis, C. psittaci, and C. abortus) by using qPCR. Chlamydia felis is an intracellular Gram negative bacteriumendemicamonghouse catsworldwide, primarily causing inflammation of feline conjunctiva, rhinitis and respiratory problems.C. feliscan be recovered from the stomach and reproductive tract. Zoonotic infection of humans with C. felishas been reported. Chlamydophila psittaci is a lethal intracellular bacterial species that may cause endemic avian chlamydiosis, epizootic outbreaks in mammals, and respiratory psittacosis in humans. C. psittaci is transmitted by inhalation, contact or ingestion among birds and to mammals. Chlamydia abortus was previously classified as Chlamydia psittaci. In 1999C. psittaci and C. abortus were recognized as distinct species based on differences of pathogenicity and DNA-DNA hybridization. Endemic throughout the world, C. abortus is the most common cause of infectious abortion in small ruminants (sheep and goats). It also causes abortion in cattle and pigs, and represents a significant zoonotic risk to pregnant women.
