70027-8Dermatophytes chitin synthase 1 chs1 gene [Presence] in Nail by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

This term was created for, but not limited to, Staten's Serum Institute Dermatophyte-Trichophyton rubrum test kit, which is is an in vitro diagnostic detection of dermatophytes in general (pan-dermatophytes) as well as Trichophyton rubrum (see LOINC 69939-7). The primer pairs are directed towards genes encoding chitin synthase 1 (chs1, 366bp amplicaon size) for detection of dermatophytes and ITS2 (internal transcribed spacer, 203bp amplicon size) for detection of T. rubrum.

Part Description

LP145665-8   Dermatophytes chitin synthase 1 (chs1) gene
Dermatophytes include three types of fungi that commonly cause skin disease in animals and humans: Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Trichophyton. There are about 40 species in these three genera. Dermatophytes cause infections of the skin, hair and nails, including ringworm, tinea, and onychomycosis, due to their ability to obtain nutrients from keratinized material. Immuno-compromised patients are predisposed to chronic or recurrent dermatophyte infections. The chitin synthase 1 (csh1) gene is conserved among dermatophytes and used for general detection of the fungi in specimen by PCR.

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
