Chalmydiae: Introduction, Morphology,Life Cycle,Pathogenecity, Lab Diagnosis and Treatment

Chalmydiae are non - motile, gram- negative obligate intracellular bacteria. They contains both RNA and DNA. They multiply within the cytoplasm of host cells, which form characteristic intracellular inclusion bodies. They can be seen with light microscope after staining with Giemsa stain better with Castaneda, Machiavello or Giminez  stains. They contain better with Castaneda, Machiavello or Giminez stains. They contain glycogen matrix. They cal also be demonstrated yb Immunofluorescence tets. The cell wall structure of Chalmydiae is close to Gram - negative bacteria. They are susceptible to Tetracycline. They have restricted metabolic activities. None of these metabolic reaction can synthesize the energy . Therefore , they have been considered as energy parasite that they use the ATP produced by the host cells for their own requirements. Introduction of Chalmydiae Chalmydiae are non - motile, gram- negative...
