Part Description

LP121193-9   Kingella kingae DNA
Kingella kingae is a common etiologic agent of occult bacteremia and joint and bone infections in young children between the ages of 6 and 36 months as well as opportunistic infections in older children and adults that are immunocompromised. Cases of K. kingae are more commonly diagnosed in developed countries, possibly due to the wider availability of molecular assays for organism detection compared to developing nations. K. kingae is a Gram-negative coccobacillus with tapered ends that is usually arranged in pairs or short chains. A variant of the organism grows as pinpoint colonies and is called a small-colony variant (SCV). K. kingae's virulence mechanisms include pili, polysaccharide capsules, and a toxin named RTX. The genes encoding the RTX toxin (rtxA and rtxB) are two of the molecular targets that are used to detect K. kingae. Other targets include the 16S rRNA and cpn60 genes, both of which are less sensitive than the rtx genes. [PMID: 25567222] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
