The staphylococcal Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) genes, [lukS-PV-lukF-PV], exist on the genome of a temperate bacteriophage phiPVL isolated from mitomycin C-induced Staphylococcus aureus V8 (ATCC 49775) (Kaneko, J., Kimura, T., Kawakami, Y., Tomita, T., Kamio, Y., 1997b. Panton-Valentine leukocidin genes in phage-like particle isolated from mitomycin C-treated Staphylococcus aureus V8 (ATCC 49775). Biosci. Biotechnol. Biochem. 61, 1960-1962). In this study, the complete nucleotide sequence… CONTINUE READING
