    • Relevance
      Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a very small bacterium, a member of the class Mollicutes, meaning soft skin. Along with the other members of this class (Acholeplasma, Anaeroplasma, Asteroleplasma, Spiroplasma, and Ureaplasma) Mycoplasma are characterized by their unusually small genome as well as their complete lack of a bacterial cell wall. M. pneumoniae is a common cause of mild pneumonia and usually affects people younger than 40. Various studies suggest that it causes 15 to 50% of all pneumonia in adults and an even higher percentage of pneumonia in school aged children. Beta lactam antibiotics such as penicillin and cycloserine are ineffective as they act specifically to disrupt the cell wall so alternative antibiotic therapies such as the use of polyenes may be required. People at highest risk of mycoplasma pneumonia infection include those living or working in crowded areas such as schools and homeless shelters, although many people who become infected have no identifiable risk factor. M. pneumoniae can be detected via serology, PCR or in cell culture assays.

    Customer reviews and Q&As

    This antibody was raised against strain Eaton FH. Unfortunately, we have not performed any assays to determine whether or not the antibody can differentiate between FH and M129 strains.

    We do not have type 1 vs type 2 specific validation data for this antibody. However, the antibody should detect "all antigens" of M. pneumoniae, so we would expect that it would recognize both type 1 and 2 although this hasn't been specifical...
