Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme Disease)
Description:
Borrelia burgdorferi is a spirochete and the cause of Lyme disease, a tick transmitted illness of humans and animals. B. burgdorferi may persist in humans and animals for months or years following initial infection, despite a robust humoral immune response. B. burgdorferi resembles other spirochetes in that it is a highly specialized, motile, two-membrane, spiral shaped bacteria which lives primarily as an extracellular pathogen. B. burgdorferi has an unusual genome compared with other eubacteria which includes a linear chromosome approximately one megabase in size and numerous linear and circular plasmids.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen and paraffin
Western Blot: Bands at ~83kD, ~41kD, ~34kD and ~31kD. Additional lower MW bands may also be observed
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
