Part Descriptions

LP14087-8   Borrelia burgdorferi
Borrelia burgdorferi is a Gram negative spirochete bacterium that causes Lyme disease. It is most commonly transmitted to humans by an infected tick. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans that usually spreads from the bite mark. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. Paralysis of one or both sides of the face may occur. Treatment often requires antibiotics. This bacterium is microaerophillic and slow-growing, explaining the long delays when diagnosing Lyme disease. There are a large number of sub-species which differ in clinical symptoms and presentation as well as geographic distribution. The life-cycle of B. burgdorferi is complex, requiring ticks, rodents, and deer as temporary hosts. Mice are the primary reservoir for the bacteria that are transmitted to deer by the tick Ixodes scapularis. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP37332-1   Borrelia burgdorferi Ab.IgM
The detection by Western blot of immunoglobulin M antibodies directed against Borrelia burgdorferi, a Gram negative bacterium, is one of the most reliable tests for the presence of the pathogen. Borrelia burgdorferi is transmitted to humans by the tick Ixodes scapularis and causes Lyme disease. The presence of IgM bands 21/25, 39, and 41 indicates a positive result.
