In the present work the chemical cell wall composition and some other biochemical characteristics were studied in staphylococci with the intention of utilizing the data obtained in their classification. According to the cell wall peptidoglycans and teichoic acids, the 130 strains of staphylococci studied are divided into 10 major groups. This division of staphylococci into groups is in good agreement with their present classification only in some cases. All of the 47Staphylococcus aureus… CONTINUE READING
