The MycbBov dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Mycobacterium tuberculosis variant bovis detection by using qPCR. Mycobacterium bovis is a Gram-positive, host-associated, aerobic bacterium belonging to the Mycobacteriaceae family. M. bovis is the agent responsible for bovine tuberculosis, however it can also cause the disease in humans if there is consumption of infected milk. The pathology of M. bovis is similar to M. tuberculosis in humans, causing chronic debilitation, coughing, and further spread to other organs. In fact, both are part of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC), a genetically related group of Mycobacterium species that cause tuberculosis in many species. The disease is of serious economic importance to farmers because of the stringent control measures. The fast detection is essential for control and eradication of the disease.
