Production of toxic shock syndrome toxin by Staphylococcus aureus isolated from mastitic cow's milk and farm bulk milk.
The production of toxic shock syndrome toxin (TSST) by Staphylococcus aureus isolated from mastitic cow's milk and farm bulk milk was examined by a reverse passive latex agglutination method (RPLA).Expand

Structural gene and strain specificity of a novel cysteine protease produced by Staphylococcus aureus isolated from a diseased chicken.
Recently whole genome sequencing of Staphylococcus aureus has revealed the genes encoding cysteine proteases such as staphopain and SspB. In this study, we cloned and sequenced the structural geneExpand

Leukotoxin family genes in Staphylococcus aureus isolated from domestic animals and prevalence of lukM-lukF-PV genes by bacteriophages in bovine isolates.
Leukotoxin family genes in Staphylococcus aureus isolated from domestic animals were examined by polymerase chain reaction. LukS and lukF genes were detected in all 48 avian and 72 porcine isolatesExpand

Cloning and characterization of a cDNA representing a putative complement-regulatory plasma protein from barred sand bass (Parablax neblifer).
It has been demonstrated previously that plasma from a number of vertebrate species including the phylogenetically old barred sand bass possesses molecules that cleave the alpha'-chain of theExpand

Detection of Clostridium septicum hemolysin gene by polymerase chain reaction.
A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was developed for the detection of the hemolysin (alpha toxin) gene of Clostridium septicum. The PCR primers were designed from the sequence of the hemolysin geneExpand

Variation of the agr locus in Staphylococcus aureus isolates from cows with mastitis.
Staphylococcus aureus isolates from mastitic cow's milk were examined for production of alpha-hemolysin and protein A and their accessory gene regulator (agr locus) was analyzed. An inverseExpand

Quadruple or quintuple conversion of hlb, sak, sea (or sep), scn, and chp genes by bacteriophages in non-beta-hemolysin-producing bovine isolates of Staphylococcus aureus.
In 13 of 43 non-beta-hemolysin-producing bovine isolates of Staphylococcus aureus, two truncated beta-hemolysin (hlb) genes were demonstrated by PCR and sequencing, and one truncated hlb gene wasExpand

Genetic and Biochemical Properties of a Hemolysin (Pyolysin) Produced by a Swine Isolate of Arcanobacterium (Actinomyces) pyogenes
Arcanobacterium (Actinomyces) pyogenes, a causative agent of various pyogenic diseases in domestic animals, produces a hemolysin which is thought to be an important virulence factor. This hemolysinExpand

Murine binding protein of the fourth component of complement: structural polymorphism and its linkage to the major histocompatibility complex.
The binding protein of the fourth component of complement (C4-BP) is a regulatory protein of the complement system with specific affinity for the fourth component. This paper describes a structuralExpand

Murine C4-binding protein: a rapid purification method by affinity chromatography.
A simple, 3-step method was described for purification of murine C4 binding protein (C4-bp), a recently recognized serum protein that functions as one of the regulatory proteins of the complementExpand
