82475-5Borrelia miyamotoi glpQ gene [Presence] in Blood by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

The DNA amplification target is a gene encoding glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase (GlpQ), which is specific to the Borrelia species in the relapsing fever group. This gene is not found in the Borrelia species that cause Lyme disease. Melting curve analysis is then used to identify the organism as B. miyamotoi. A positive result is consistent with active or recent infection.

Part Description

LP221168-0   Borrelia miyamotoi (glpQ) gene
Borrelia miyamotoi is a spirochetal bacterium that is closely related to the Borrelia species that causes tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF), and it is more distantly related to the Borrelia species that cause Lyme disease. First identified in 1995 in ticks from Japan, B. miyamotoi has since been detected in two species of North American ticks, the black-legged or "deer" tick (Ixodes scapularis) and the western black-legged tick (Ixodes pacificus). These ticks are already known to transmit several diseases, including Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis. Patients with B. miyamotoi infection are most likely to have fever, chills, and headache. Other common symptoms included body and joint pain and fatigue. Unlike Lyme disease, rash is uncommon, presenting in only 4 out of 51 patients. Patients infected with B. miyamotoi have been treated with a 2-4 week course of doxycycline, amoxicillin, or ceftriaxone. Fewer than 60 well-documented cases of human infection have been reported in the United States as of July 2015. The route of transmission of B. miyamotoi to humans has not been firmly established, but likely involves the bite of infected black-legged ticks. The glpQ gene encodes a periplasmic enzyme, glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase of 333 amino acids produced initially with a 25 residue long signal sequence. GlpQ is not found in Borrelia species that cause Lyme disease. Source: Regenstrief LOINC, CDC: B. miyamotoi
