We report a novel phenotype of methicillin resistance, designated "Eagle-type" resistance, which is characteristic in its resistance to high concentrations of methicillin (64 to 512 microg/ml) and susceptibility to low concentrations of methicillin (2 to 16 microg/ml). The type of resistance was expressed in mutant strains selected with high concentrations(More)
The mechanism of methicillin and vancomycin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is discussed, focusing on the phenotypic expression of resistance; i.e., pre-methicillin resistance, Egle-type resistance, heterogeneous and homogeneous resistance. Acquisition of staphylococcus cassette chromosome(SCCmec) by a recipient MSSA strain in the mecA-positive,(More)
