BACKGROUND Enterococci are opportunistic pathogens and are a major factor in nosocomial infections. They may contain ebp operon, which upon expression makes them highly prone to biofilm formation on biotic and abiotic surfaces. OBJECTIVES The aim of the current study was to detect the polymorphism of ebp genes in Enterococcus faecalis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Samples were isolated from patients (n = 58) and hospital environments (n = 32) of two hospitals in Tehran, Iran. All enterococcal… CONTINUE READING
