Neisseria gonorrhoeae (Gonorrhea)
Description:
Neisseria gonorrhoeae, also known as Gonococci is a Gram-negativebacteriahighly fastidiouscocci, requiring nutrient supplementation to survive. The cocci are facultatively intracellular and typically appear in pairs (diplococci).
Neisserial LPS is distinguished from enteric LPS by its highly-branched basal oligosaccharide structure and the absence of repeating O-antigen subunits. For these reasons, neisserial LPS is referred to as lipooligosaccharide (LOS). The bacterium characteristically releases outer membrane fragments called "blebs" during growth. These blebs contain LOS and probably have a role in pathogenesis if they are disseminated during the course of an infection.
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a relatively fragile organism, susceptible to temperature changes, drying, uv light, and other environmental conditions. Strains of N. gonorrhoeae are variable in their cultural requirements so that media containing hemoglobin, NAD, yeast extract and other supplements are needed for isolation and growth of the organism.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Direct ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Direct ELISA: 1:10,000 will yield 0.5 O.D using rabbit anti-mouse (AP).
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
