The insertion sequence IS900 has been considered specific for Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (M. paratuberculosis) and has, therefore, been used as the target gene for diagnostic PCR of M. paratuberculosis. From a healthy dairy cow we have isolated and characterised a mycobacterium harbouring one copy of a sequence with 94% identity to IS900 at the nucleic acid level. The isolate was shown to be related to Mycobacterium cookii, as assessed by 16S rRNA sequencing. Strong… Expand
An ISMap02-like insertion sequence in Mycobacterium spp. interferes with specific detection of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis.
TLDR
Results suggest that ISMap02 has a conserved region with similarity to other ISs, and that the diagnostic value of the primer sets targeting that region should be re-addressed. Expand
An IS 900-like sequence in Mycobacterium porcinum strains isolated from bovine bulk milk : implications for diagnosis
The insertion sequence IS900 was considered highly specific for Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) until the discovery of IS900-like elements in mycobacteria other than MAP.Expand

Insertion Sequence IS900 Revisited
ABSTRACT Many studies investigating Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis in Crohn's disease have used molecular detection of IS900 in clinical samples, but some have described polymorphisms inExpand
New PCR systems to confirm real-time PCR detection of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis
TLDR
Two new real-time PCR systems on the IS900 gene and one on the F57 gene were developed and carefully validated on 267 strains and 56 positive clinical faecal samples to confirm the presence of Johne's disease. Expand
A novel IS element, ISMpa1, in Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis.
A novel insertion element belonging to the IS110 family was identified in Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis. The IS element, ISMpa1, is 1500 bp and has one ORF encoding a putativeExpand
Use of Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification of the IS900 Sequence for Rapid Detection of Cultured Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis
TLDR
The results indicate that LAMP can provide a rapid yet simple test for the detection of MAP, and the white turbidity of magnesium pyrophosphate, a by-product of the LAMP reaction, allowed simple visual detection. Expand
Development and evaluation of a Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) specific multiplex PCR assay.
TLDR
A multiplex PCR system designed to enhance specificity for MAP detection in a single PCR reaction that was highly specific for MAP, and the nested PCR system was also positive with several other mycobacterium species. Expand
Newly developed primers for the detection of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis.
TLDR
Two new PCR assays for the detection of Map are developed based on the IS900 sequence using primers different from the ones previously reported, the second assay on the f57 sequence, which has proven to be useful for the identification of Map. Expand
Mycobacterium porcinum strains isolated from bovine bulk milk: implications for Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis detection by PCR and culture.
TLDR
From the findings, any culture showing one or more M. porcinum colonies represents a potential "false negative" result and should therefore be considered as contaminated and IS900-like elements could be more widespread than was previously thought. Expand

The extraction method was not adequate to recover small amounts of M. paratuberculosis and that inhibitory substances were still present in the processed specimens, but that the method is useful for identifying positive samples. Expand
