Sensitive detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae in human respiratory tract samples by optimized real-time PCR approach.


To enhance the sensitivity of the available real-time PCR systems for the detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae, we established a method to amplify copies of the repetitive element repMp1. In a study of respiratory tract samples, we found that, compared to the use of the conserved part of the P1 adhesin gene as a monocopy target, the use of the repMp1-PCR… (More)
