Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates, cell culture supernatants, other biological fluids
This Kit allows for the determination of MP IgG concentrations in Mouse serum, cellculture supernates and other biological fluids.
Store kit reagents at 2-8 °C for 6 months. Immediately after use remaining reagents should be returned to cold storage at 4 °C.
7.5 ng/L - 120 ng/L
The minimum detectable dose (MDD) of Mouse MP IgG is typically less than 0.5 ng/L.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae grows exclusively by parasitizing mammals. Reproduction, therefore, is dependent upon attachment to a host cell. According to Waite and Talkington, specialized reproduction occurs by "binary fission, temporally linked with duplication of its attachment organelle, which migrates to the opposite pole of the cell during replication and before nucleoid separation". Mutations that affect the formation of the attachment organelle not only hinder motility and cell division, but also reduce the ability of M. pneumoniae cells to adhere to the host cell.
