Abstract

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a widespread pathogen of the respiratory tract that is also associated with atherosclerosis. The whole genome sequence was determined for a Japanese isolate, C. pneumoniae strain J 138. The sequence predicted a variety of genes encoding outer membrane proteins (OMPs) including ompA and porB, another 10 predicted omp genes, and 27 pmp genes. All were detected in the whole genome sequence of strain CWL029, a strain isolated and sequenced in the United States. A comparative study of the OMPs of the two strains revealed a nucleotide sequence identity of 89.6%-100% (deduced amino acid sequence identity, 71.1%-100%). The overall genomic organization and location of genes are identical in both strains. Thus, a few unique sequences of the OMPs may be essential for specific attributes that define the differential biology of two C. pneumoniae strains.
