Disease relevance of Afipia


High impact information on Afipia


Chemical compound and disease context of Afipia

  • Free-living Afipia strains occurring widely in the natural environment may be significant as methylotrophs, degrading C(1)-sulfur compounds, including the recalcitrant organosulfur compound methanesulfonate [3].
  • A microagglutination test with heat-killed, safranin-stained whole-cell antigen for detecting antibodies to Afipia species has been developed [8].

Gene context of Afipia

  • The frequency of sera positive for unnamed Afipia genospecies 1-3 was < 1% [8].
  • The specificity of the immunopurified antigen was tested in EIA against hyperimmune rabbit sera and sera of rabbits inoculated with live B. henselae, B. quintana and Afipia felis [9].
