Evidence for the existence of two molecular species of exfoliative toxin (ET) synthesized by Staphylococcus hyicus (SHET) under chromosomal and plasmid control is presented. Serological evidence that these molecular species of toxins are distinct from each other is given. The molecular weights of SHET from plasmidless strain P-1 (SHETA) and from plasmid-carrying strains P-10 and P-23 (SHETB) were almost equal. Both of the serotypes of SHET exhibited exfoliation in 1-day-old chickens. The… CONTINUE READING
