Bacteria of the genus Borrelia are highly motile spirochetes with a Gram-negative bacterial type cell wall, that grow under microaerophilic or anaerobic conditions. Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato is the causal agent of Lyme disease and includes three human-pathogenic species: B. burgdorferi sensu stricto, B. afzelii and B. garinii. The three species are present in Europe, while only the former is found in North America. They are transmitted to humans by the bite of ticks.
