i. Taxonomy ID: 809

ii. Description:

Chlamydiaceae is a bacterial family consisting of two genera. Chlamydophila was recognized in 1999 with six species, and three species in the original genus, Chlamydia. The divergence of Chlamydophila from Chlamydia is indicated by the similarity of protein coding and ribosomal RNA genes. The 16S ribosomal RNA genes of Chlamydophila and Chlamydia are close to 95% identical. However, 95% is a guideline for establishing new genera in chlamydial families. The full-length 23S rRNA genes of Chlamydophila and Chlamydia species are less than 95% identical.

All Chlamydiae have a biphasic developmental life cycle that depends on obligately intracellular growth in eukaryotic host cells. Chlamydia trachomatis causes both ocular and genital infections.
