Quantity limit per order for this item is 1. This item can be ordered twice a year. Orders over this limit will be sent to NIAID for approval before shipment.

The Yersinia pestis Plasmid Detection Kit is designed to detect the presence of pPCP1, pMT1 and pCD1. The kit consists of the following components:

  1. Primer sets designed to detect the pPCP1, pMT1 and pCD1 plasmids using standard polymerase chain reactions, resulting in amplicons of approximately 400, 1200 and 1900 base pairs, respectively
  2. Positive control primer set that amplifies an approximately 800 base pair chromosomal marker unique to Yersinia pestis
  3. Linearized plasmid internal control DNA; amplification using each of the primer sets will result in a band of approximately 130 base pairs

Internal DNA Control

BEI Resources NR-2715 (Genomic DNA from Yersinia pestis, strain ZE94-2122) contains all three plasmids and can be used as an additional positive control. The successful amplification of an approximately 1900 base pair band from this control DNA is essential when reporting results for the presence or absence of the pCD1 plasmid.  BEI Resources NR-2646 (Genomic DNA from Yersinia enterocolitica subsp. enterocolitica, strain 33114) contains none of the plasmids and may be used as a negative control.

NR-9686, NR-9687, NR-9688 and NR-9689 contain approximately 400 µL of a mixture of forward and reverse primers in TE buffer (10 mM Tris-HCl, 1 mM EDTA) (pH 7.0). NR-9551 contains approximately 40 ng of plasmid DNA in TE buffer (pH 7.0).
