Serological cross-reactivity between different Chlamydia-like organisms.
Journal of Clinical Microbiology
The serological cross-reactivity between different recently described Chlamydia-related organisms was determined. Mouse sera exhibited a strong reactivity against autologous antigen and closely related heterologous antigen but no cross-reactivity with distantly related species. These results are important to better interpret serological studies and assess the pathogenic role of these obligate intracellular bacteria.
