Background: Borrelia burgdorferi is a spirochete and the cause of Lyme disease, a tick-transmitted illness of humans and animals. B. burgdorferi may persist in humans and animals for months or years following initial infection, despite a robust humoral immune response. B. burgdorferi resembles other spirochetes in that it is a highly specialized, motile, two-membrane, spiral shaped bacteria which lives primarily as an extracellular pathogen. B. burgdorferi has an unusual genome compared with other eubacteria which includes a linear chromosome approximately one megabase in size and numerous linear and circular plasmids.
Cross Reactive Species:
(B. burgdorferi, B. afzelii, B. garinii, B. valaisiana and more from the Lyme Disease clade)
