The MycTur dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Mycoplasma turicensis (Candidatus) detection by using qPCR. Mycoplasma is a bacterial genus that lacks a cell wall surrounding the cell membrane. Since there is no murein present in these bacteria, they are naturally resistant to antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis. They are able to colonize the outside of erythrocytes and infect a wide range of vertebrate hosts. Candidatus Mycoplasma turicensis is a parasitic bacterium capable of infecting immunocompromised or splenectomised dogs mainly. Molecular detection by qPCR is the most sensitive and specific way of detecting bacteria in the blood of infected animals having acute or latent infections.
