Part Descriptions

LP185682-4   Pseudomonas aeruginosa regA gene
A species of gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacteria commonly isolated from clinical specimens (wound, burn, and urinary tract infections). It is also found widely distributed in soil and water. P. aeruginosa is a major agent of nosocomial infection. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP185682-4   Pseudomonas aeruginosa regA gene
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important opportunistic pathogen that causes severe respiratory infection. Exotoxin A (toxA) is one of its primary virulence factors, and the presence of RegA , a protein encoded by the regA gene, is essential for P aeruginosa toxA expression. Identification of the regA gene in clinical specimens can be useful for identifying P aeruginosa as a causative pathogen. [PMID: 18048935] Source: Regenstrief LOINC, PMID: 18048935

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.
