Part Description

LP185673-3   Streptococcus pneumoniae nanA gene
The nanA gene is common across all strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae and encodes a sialidase protein (also known as neuraminidase) that plays an important role in the virulence of this pathogen. Because the nanA gene is conserved across all strains, its presence in clinical specimens can be used to identify Streptococcus pneumoniae as one of the pathogens responsible for a specific infection.

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.
