Chlamydia trachomatis (C. trachomatis) is the leading cause of bacterial sexually transmitted diseases and infectious diseases that cause blindness. The pathophysiology of chlamydial infections is poorly understood, but secreted proteins have emerged as key virulence factors. C. trachomatis glycogen synthase (GlgA) is a chlamydial secretory protein, which localizes in the lumen of chlamydial inclusion bodies and the cytosol of host cells. In order to improve understanding of the roles of GlgA in chlamydial pathogenesis, four proteins that interact with GlgA, Homo sapiens CXXC finger protein 1, prohibitin (PHB), gelsolin‑like actin‑capping protein and apolipoprotein A‑I binding protein were identified using yeast two‑hybrid assays. The functions of these proteins are complex, and preliminary results suggested that PHB interacts with GlgA. However, further studies are required to determine the specific interactions of these proteins with GlgA. The findings of the present study may provide a direction and foundation for future studies focusing on the mechanism of GlgA in C. trachomatis infection.
