87559-1Ehrlichia chaffeensis groEL gene [Presence] in Blood by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Part Description

LP263394-1   Ehrlichia chaffeensis groEL gene
The groEL gene segment, which encodes the 60-kDa heat shock protein (HSP60), is present at a frequency of 1 copy per organism in Anaplasma and Ehrlichia pathogenic species, including Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Ehrlichiosis chaffeensis, Ehrlichia muris eauclairensis, and Ehrlichia ewingii/canis. These species are associated with ehrlichiosis, a bacterial disease transmitted by ticks that causes flu-like symptoms. The groEL gene target is used to simultaneously detect and differentiate between these Anaplasma and Ehrlichia species for the diagnosis of ehrlichiosis, particularly during the early phase of infection.
