The MycMyc dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Mycoplasma mycoides detection by using qPCR. Mycoplasma mycoides is a bacterial species of the genus Mycoplasma in the class Mollicutes. Mycoplasma mycoides comprises two subspecies, mycoides and capri, which infect cattle and small ruminants such as goats respectively. Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides are parasites that can be found predominantly in cattle and goat hosts, causing the contagious bovine pleuropneumonia. Symptoms of acute disease involve respiratory distress, cough, confusion, anorexia, and pain in the affected side. Disease is spread by inhalation of bodily fluids from an infected animal, although close contact is required for transmission. The mortality rate is quite varied and ranges from 10 to 70 percent. Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri (formerly known as M. mycoides large colonies) is one of the etiologic agents of the contagious agalactia, causing mastitis, arthritis, and infectious keratoconjunctivitis. Both species are widespread through the world.
