Lysostaphin expression in mammary glands confers protection against staphylococcal infection in transgenic mice

Abstract

Infection of the mammary gland, in addition to causing animal distress, is a major economic burden of the dairy industry. Staphylococcus aureus is the major contagious mastitis pathogen, accounting for approximately 15–30% of infections, and has proved difficult to control using standard management practices. As a first step toward enhancing mastitis… (More)
