The phenotypic expression of haemolysins and the presence of genes encoding alpha and beta-haemolysin were determined in 105 Staphylococcus aureus isolates from bovine mastitis, 100 isolates from the nostrils of healthy humans, and 60 isolates from septicaemia in humans. Furthermore, the possible change in expression of haemolysins after subcultivation in human and bovine blood and milk was studied in selected isolates. Alpha-haemolysin was expressed phenotypically in 39 (37%) of the bovine… CONTINUE READING
