Staphylococcus aureus has become a major source of hospital infections and the risk of colonisation and infection by community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus (CA-MRSA) is increasingly higher. Because of the importance of S. aureus to public health, many molecular typing methods have been developed to determine its transmission routes and source of(More)
One hundred seventy Staphylococcus aureus isolates, collected in 1996 to 2004, were reidentified by phenotypic and genotypic methods. One hundred ten of these (65%) were confirmed, as previously denoted, to be clumping factor (CF)- or free coagulase-deficient S. aureus, based on their phenotype. Based on the CF or coagulase production, three groups of(More)
The yet uncharacterized membrane protein SA2056 belongs to the ubiquitous RND (Resistance-Nodulation-cell Division) family of transmembrane efflux transporters. The sa2056 gene is located downstream of femX, the gene encoding the essential, non-ribosomal peptidyl-transferase adding the first glycine in the staphylococcal cell wall pentaglycine interpeptide.(More)
