Staphylococcus pseudintermedius is an opportunistic pathogen in dogs and the most frequent cause of canine pyoderma. Protein A, a potent virulence factor in S. aureus is encoded by the spa gene. S. pseudintermedius possesses genes seemingly analogous to spa, but the expression and the characteristics of their products have not been directly determined. The purpose of this study was to test isolates from major clonal groups for the presence of spa gene orthologs, quantitate their expression… CONTINUE READING
