The PorGin dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Porphyromonas gingivalis by using qPCR. Porphyromonas gingivalis resides in mouth below the gingival surface. It is one of the common pathogens in early onset periodontitis. This microbe works with other bacteria to create a biofilm in the subgingival layer that replaces the existing gram-positive, facultative bacteria with gram-negative anaerobic bacteria, eliciting an inflammatory response that results in the gums detaching from the teeth. It is usually found with, Treptonema denticola and Bacteroides forsythus. Despite is usually found in the oral cavity, as well could be in the upper gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, and in the colon.
