Part Description

LP14249-4   Mycoplasma pneumoniae
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a filamentous cell without a cell well. It has an attachment organelle at its tip with protein adhesions which attach to sialoglycoproteins or sialoglycolipid receptors on the tracheal epithelium. Pneumonia is induced by local immunologic and phagocytic responses.
Mycoplasmas generally are the smallest self-replicating organisms possessing the smallest genomes (500 to 1000 genes). Mycoplasmas have several surface antigens; antibodies to these surface antigens inhibit their growth. While various serological tests have been developed and are useful in classification, the infections are persistent, frequently difficult to detect and difficult to cure. Mycoplasma pneumonaie infection affects the upper and lower respiratory tracts. Symptoms including cough, fever and headache may persist for several weeks. Infection occurs worldwide and affects mainly children five to nine years old. [NCBI Books:NBK7637] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
