- Product overview
ab108756 Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgM Human ELISA Kit is intended for the qualitative determination of IgM class antibodies against Mycoplasma pneumoniae in human serum or plasma (citrate).
The mycoplasms belong to the class Mollicutes comprising three distinct families and four genera, one of which is Mycoplasma with over 60 species. Mycoplasma are the smallest free living organisms known (300 to 500 nm in diameter) and unlike regular bacteria they lack a cell wall. Mycoplasms are extracellular parasites, especially on mucous membranes, which can cause infections in humans, animals, plants, and cell cultures. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is primarily a respiratory pathogen (obligate) in humans involving the nasopharynx, throat, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. Other Mycoplasma, M. buccale, M. faucium, M. orale and M. salivarium are commensals in the oral cavity. Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum inhabit primarily the genital tract and may act as opportunistic invaders. M. pneumoniae is by far the most important pathogen of this group. Infection with M. pneumoniae occurs worldwide. It has been estimated to cause 15-20% of all pneumonia; the rate is highest in children and young adults. 74% of infections with M. pneumoniae are asymptomatic.
