A novel high-resolution melt PCR assay discriminates Anaplasma phagocytophilum and "Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis".

Abstract

"Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis" (Anaplasmataceae) is an emerging pathogen transmitted by Ixodes ticks. Conventional PCR and the newly developed high-resolution melt PCR were used to detect and discriminate "Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis" and Anaplasma phagocytophilum. Both bacterial species were frequently found in Ixodes ricinus and Ixodes… (More)
