Prints in 3-5 business days
The nine-banded armadillo is one of only two animal species that can become infected by Mycobacterium leprae, the causative agent of leprosy. It is widely known that leprosy is transmitted through... More > aerosol droplets, but recent studies show that soil and water can also serve as reservoirs for M. leprae and subsequently could facilitate further transmission of the disease. In this study, researchers collected soil samples from Yazoo National Wildlife Refuge in Mississippi, USA, where a population of M. leprae-exposed armadillos is known to reside. In the future, DNA extraction will be conducted on the samples, and DNA will be amplified using PCR processing to determine if M. leprae and other disease-causing microbes are present in the soil samples. If M. leprae is found in the samples, positive samples will be evaluated to detect spatial patterns and potential hot spots of M. leprae. The results of this study could provide new insights on M. leprae transmission in wild armadillo populations.< Less
