Table 4 Description of the origin of five strains of U. diversum, the molecular groups to which they belong, the virulence genes identified and the inflammatory modulation, comparing the gene expression data with the negative control (NC). ↑: increased gene expression

From: Multilocus sequence typing characterizes diversity of Ureaplasma diversum strains, and intra-species variability induces different immune response profiles
