80679-4Escherichia coli Stx1 and Stx2 toxin stx1+stx2 genes [Presence] in Stool by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

Qualitative detection of nucleic acid sequences in Escherichia coli shiga-like toxin 1 and 2 (stx1/stx2) genes in stool specimens by PCR-based methods. This assay does not differentiate between the two toxin genes. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the xTAG® Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel (GPP).

Part Description

LP204844-7   Escherichia coli Stx1+Stx2 toxin stx1+stx2 genes
Shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC) is also known as enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) and verotocix E. coli (VTEC). STEC are strains capable of producing Shiga toxin and typically cause blood diarrhea. Hemolytic-uremic syndrome complicates 6-9 percent of STEC infections overall and about 15 percent of STEC infections in children under age 10. STEC strains are typically have one or both stx genes that encode for Shiga Toxins 1 and 2. Source: LOINC partner 1
