Toxoplasma gondii
Description:
Toxoplasma is a crescent shaped sporozoan that lives as intracellular parasite in various tissues of vertebrates and completes its life cycle in a single host. It is transmitted via raw/undercooked meat, contaminated soil, or by direct contact. Infection due to Toxoplasma gondii usually occurs in pregnant women where a variable degree of immunosuppression may exist or in patients receiving immunosuppressive drug therapy following organ transplant. Toxoplasma infects tissue of the GI tract where an active infection is accompanied by fever and enlargement of the spleen. Symptoms of toxoplasmosis are generally mild but severe infection of lymph nodes may occur. Congenital toxoplasmosis, in which the maternal infection is transmitted during pregnancy, can produce blindness or mental retardation in the newborn.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/paraffin). Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50 to 1:100 for 30 min. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
Optimal dilution determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Infected brain tissue

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
