Prevalence and phylogenetic analysis of haemoplasmas from cats infected with multiple species.

Aquino LC, Hicks CA, Scalon MC, Lima MG, Lemos Mdos S, Paludo GR, Helps CR, Tasker S - J. Microbiol. Methods (2014)

Bottom Line: Male gender was significantly associated with haemoplasma infections.No association was found between qPCR haemoplasma status and haematological variables, however CMhm relative copy numbers were correlated with red blood cell (RBC) numbers and packed cell volume (PCV).These phylogeny findings suggest the existence of different CMhm and CMt strains.

Haemoplasma DNA relative copy numbers/μl blood for each haemoplasma species from samples generating positive results. Boxes represent the 25th, 50th (median) and 75th quartiles with whiskers extending to the greatest and smallest values. Mhf = cats qPCR positive for Mycoplasma haemofelis, CMhm = cats qPCR positive for “Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum”, CMt = cats qPCR positive for “Candidatus Mycoplasma turicensis”.

f0005: Haemoplasma DNA relative copy numbers/μl blood for each haemoplasma species from samples generating positive results. Boxes represent the 25th, 50th (median) and 75th quartiles with whiskers extending to the greatest and smallest values. Mhf = cats qPCR positive for Mycoplasma haemofelis, CMhm = cats qPCR positive for “Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum”, CMt = cats qPCR positive for “Candidatus Mycoplasma turicensis”.

Mentions: A wide range of relative copy numbers was found for all three haemoplasma species: Mhf-infected cats had relative copy numbers ranging from 0.2 × 100 to 2.54 × 108 relative copies/μl of blood, CMhm-infected cats from 0.2 × 100 to 2.32 × 108/μl and CMt-infected cats from 0.2 × 100 to 1.38 × 108/μl (Fig. 1).
