The MycCap dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Mycoplasma capricolum detection by using qPCR. Mycoplasma capricolum is a species of bacteria in the genus Mycoplasma, characterized for the lack of a cell wall around their cell membrane. M. capricolum subsp. capricolum and M. capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae are closely related subspecies of the M. mycoides cluster. M. capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae is the etiologic agent of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia, a severe and typically lethal respiratory disease. M. capricolum subsp. capricolum infection is usually non-fatal and instead results in chronic inflammation in a variety of organs, including joints, udder, eyes, and lungs. M. capricolum subsp. capricolum infection occurs worldwide and appears widespread but has rarely been found in species of small ruminants other than domestic goats and, occasionally, sheep.
