The MAP dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) by using qPCR. Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) is an obligatepathogenicbacterium in thegenus Mycobacterium, often abbreviated M. paratuberculosis. It is the causative agent of Johne’sdisease, which affects ruminants such as cattle, and also perhaps responsible for the Crohn’s disease in humans. Recent studies have shown that MAP present inmilkcan survivepasteurization, which has raised human health concerns. It is heat resistant and is capable of sequestering itself inside white blood cells, which may contribute to its persistence in milk. It has also been reported to survivechlorinationin municipal water supplies. MAP is a slow growing organism and is difficult to culture. Detection is very limited in fresh tissues, food, and water.
