Fifteen (15) backyard farms were investigated to determine the antimicrobial susceptibility and invasion ability of S. aureus isolates from cows with subclinical mastitis in México. A total of 106 cows were sampled and 31 S. aureus isolates were recovered. S. aureus isolates were resistant to penicillin class antibiotics and susceptible to gentamicin and(More)
This work describes a novel rolling-circle replicating (RCR) plasmid pBMBt1 from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. darmstadiensis (INTA Mo14-4) encoding an insecticidal crystal protein-like gene. pBMBt1 (6700 bp) contains three ORFs and their putative transcription initiation sites and Shine-Dalgarno sequences were localized. ORF1 encodes a 34.6 kDa protein(More)
This work describes a novel plasmid encoding resistance to lincomycin in a staphylococcal isolate associated with mastitis infection from dairy cows. The cryptic plasmid pBMSa1 (2750 bp) of Staphylococcus aureus SA35 was subcloned and sequenced. Two ORFs (ORF1 and ORF2) were identified, and their putative transcription initiation and Shine-Dalgarno sequence(More)
The incidence of mastitis in dairy cattle is highest at the drying off period and parturition, which are characterized by high levels of the lactogenic hormone prolactin (PRL). One of the most frequently isolated contagious pathogens causing mastitis is Staphylococcus aureus. However, the role of PRL on S. aureus infection in mammary epithelium has not been(More)
