Supply of a specific, direct and fast detection method for Cholesterol dependent Cytolysin (CDC)

Abstract:
Cholesterol dependent Cytolysin (CDC) is secreted by gram-positive bacteria. The CDCs are able to cause serious and life-threatening endogenous and exogenous human and animal infections. Due to the high lethality rate and the significance for humans and animals, it is important to specify and diagnose those pathogens in order to therapy the patients, to identify and eliminate the source of infection and ensure the food safety. The released CDCs are bound to a specific substance and can be detected with conventional methods like ELISA and Western Blot.
