80349-4Escherichia coli enteroaggregative pAA plasmid aggR+aatA genes [Presence] in Stool by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

This assay detects the Escherichia coli enteroaggregative pAA plasmid aggR and aatA genes using PCR and melt curve analysis. This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, BioFire's FilmArray Gastrointestinal panel, which is intended for the detection and identification of nucleic acids from multiple bacteria, viruses, and parasites directly from stool samples from individuals with signs and/or symptoms of gastrointestinal infection.

Part Description

LP200468-9   Escherichia coli enteroaggregative pAA plasmid aggR+aatA genes
Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) is a bacteria that causes chronic diarrhea in travelers, children in developing countries, HIV-infected patients, and in farm animals, most commonly piglets and calves. A low-molecular weight, heat-stable, plasmid-encoded enterotoxin known as EAEC heat-stable enterotoxin 1 (EAST1) is produced by some strains of EAEC. EAST1 is encoded by the astA gene. In addition to EAEC, the astA gene has been identified in other diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (EC) pathotypes including enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC), diffusely adherent E. coli (DAEC) and enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC).[PMID:8385356][PMID:12003040] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
Changed Method from "Melt.amp.tar" to "Non-probe.amp.tar", which includes other non-probe based detection methods while still distinguishing from probe-based methods.; 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.
