Re: Improved Borrelia burgdorferi Blood culture Method

This I took to be the semi-official response to my query. It isn't satisfactory but I am old and tired and so shan't pursue it. But the ThermoScientific abs seem to confirm Bb as the spirochetes cultured by Advanced. [snip] Example of a Once B31 specific Mouse Monoclonal- now not unique for B31 bor...

Re: Improved Borrelia burgdorferi Blood culture Method

An internal validation study for the specificity of the polyclonal antibody showed that it is able to recognize reference cultures of Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii , but not Escherichia coli or Treponema denticola (data not shown). snip monoclonal antibody (MA-1-7006 , ...

I had positive Western Blots done at IGenex and it did not show the 2 strains separated out. I was not aware they offered this dual Western Blot clinically. It makes sense they would prepare both separately for their study but I have never heard of it being offered outside research and sent to a pa...

Re: Bb Osp in wild white-tailed deer (NY, Penns.)

Rita - Don't know what you want to understand. But then I am old. :D Skimming the article you posted. Never seen an Erp protein with a molecular weight anywhere near 60 kDa. It has been clear to me for a couple of years that "18" was either RevA, 17 kDa, or ErpA/I/N, 19 kDa, or both! And it is quite...
