Detection of the 16S rRNA gene of Nocardia species

Background: Nocardia is a genus of Grampositive, facultative intracellular bacteria belonging to the Actinomycetes. Nocardia species are found worldwide in soil, water and plants. This genus has 85 species, of these > 25 have been recognized as causes of human infections, and > 30 are responsible for animal diseases. Nocardia spp. cause opportunistic disease in humans and animals. Nocardiosis is an infectious disease affecting either the lungs, but it may spread to other organ systems, most often the brain and the skin. It may also involve the kidneys, joints, heart, eyes, and bones. Bovine mastitis is the most common clinical manifestation of nocardiosis among domestic ruminants. Nocardial mastitis is observed in dairy herds submitted to inadequate milking management and/or poor hygienic conditions in pre- and post-milking. The most important pathogenic species for humans and animals are N. asteroides complex, N. brasiliensis, N. pseudobrasiliensis, N. otitidiscaviarum, and N. transvalensis.

Description: BactoReal® Kit Nocardia spp. uses real-time PCR for the detection of the 16S rDNA gene of Nocardia spp. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination,the reaction mix included contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UNG).
