Progressive atrophic rhinitis is a disease of pigs, caused by infection with toxigenic P. multocida
The pathogenesis of the disease is linked to a single, well-characterized component: the Pasteurella multocida
toxin (PMT). The clinical manifestations of the disease are shortening or distortion of the snout, sneezing, nasal discharge, and epitaxis. Reduced growth rate is seen in severe cases.
Use ELISA Systems Pasteurella multocida Toxin PMT Detection Kit for the detection of Pasteurella multocida
toxin in porcine samples.
- Simple: Ready-to-use liquid reagents and concentrates make the assay easy to implement and run
- Sensitive: Detect proteins at low levels for improved assurance of safety
- Specific: Detect PMT in any type of sample, including extracts of primary mixed cultures obtained from, e.g., nasal swabs or washings2
Other names for the PMT include dermonecrotic toxin (DNT), heat labile toxin (HLT), turbinate atrophy toxin (TAT), and osteolytic toxin.
