Part Description

LP149698-5   Neisseria meningitidis serogroup
Neisseria meningitidis is a species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria. It is a commensal and pathogen only of humans, and can be carried asymptomatically in the nasopharynx. When found in cerebrospinal fluid it is the causative agent of cerebrospinal meningitis (meningitis, meningococcal). It can also be found in venereal discharges and blood. At least 13 serogroups have been described based on antigenic differences in the capsular polysaccharides; the ones causing most meningitis infections being A, B, C, Y, and W-135. Outbreaks caused by serogroup X meningococci have also been reported. Each serogroup can be further classified by serotype, serosubtype, and immunotype.
