82473-0Borrelia mayonii oppA1 gene [Presence] in Blood by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

The DNA amplification target is the 283-bp plasminogen-binding protein gene (oppA1), which is present at a frequency of one copy per organism in all four pathogenic species of the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato genogroup (Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia afzelii, Borrelia garinii, and Borrelia mayonii). Melting curve analysis is used to identify B. mayonii and differentiate it from the other three species.

Part Descriptions

LP220481-8   Borrelia mayonii oppA1 gene
Borrelia mayonii is the proposed name for a bacterial species found in 2013, causing Lyme disease in six people who live in the upper Midwestern United States. Worldwide, Lyme disease is caused by three main species of bacteria: Borrelia burgdorferi, B. afzelii, and B. garinii. Borrelia burgdorferi causes Lyme disease in the United States, while the other two species are the leading causes of Lyme disease in Europe and Asia. B. mayonii is a new species that is genetically distinct from these three species and is the only species besides B. burgdorferi shown to cause Lyme disease in North America. B. mayonii has been identified in blacklegged (or "deer") ticks collected in several counties in northwestern Wisconsin and Minnesota. It is highly likely, however, that infected ticks occur in other areas of both states. Limited information suggests that illness caused by B. mayonii is similar to that caused by B. burgdorferi, but with a few possible differences. Like B. burgdorferi, B. mayonii causes fever, headache, rash, and neck pain in the early stages of infection (days after exposure) and arthritis in later stages of infection (weeks after exposure). Unlike B. burgdorferi however, B. mayonii appears to be associated with nausea and vomiting, diffuse rashes, and a higher concentration of bacteria in the blood. Patients infected with B. mayonii have been successfully treated with a 2-4 week course of doxycycline. Amoxicillin, ceftriaxone, and cefuroxime have also been used.

LP220481-8   Borrelia mayonii oppA1 gene
The oppA1 gene is a member of a family of three genes; oppA-1, oppA-2, and oppA-3, that encode predicted peptide-binding proteins. Peptide-binding protein dependent transport systems are recognized to play important roles in microbial cell signaling and virulence. [PMID:9712756] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
