Abstract

Mycoplasma bovis (M. bovis) is one of the most significant pathogens in cattle. The aim of this study was to develop
a rapid real-time LAMP assay, specific for M. bovis with designed primers targeting the OPPD/F gene. The assay was
tested for 1 h at 63℃. The results could be visualized by the addition of calcein dye. Real-time LAMP was specific
exclusively for M. bovis without cross-reactivity with other bacteria. The sensitivity of the real-time LAMP was
determined to be 2.29×10-3ng/μL of DNA and was 100 times higher than conventional PCR. Lamp assay was conducted
on 65 clinical samples to test its usefulness and reliability and compared to the PCR assay results. A concordance of
100% was observed between the two assays. This real-time LAMP assay can be applied by diagnostic laboratories and
for field detection of M. bovis infection.
