A real-time combined polymerase chain reaction assay for the rapid detection and differentiation of Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, and Ehrlichia ewingii.

Abstract

A rapid real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay capable of the simultaneous detection and differentiation of Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, and Ehrlichia ewingii was developed using the LightCyclertrade mark instrument (Roche Applied Sciences, Indianapolis, IN). The assay targets the operon groEL of the heat shock protein. Base… (More)
