The present study was designed to comparatively investigate 19 Staphylococcus aureus strains isolated from specimens of 19 different birds during routine microbiological diagnostics. The S. aureus strains were characterized genotypically by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification using 62 different oligonucleotide primers amplifying genes encoding staphylococcal cell surface proteins, exoproteins and two classes of the accessory gene regulator agr. All 19 investigated S. aureus were… CONTINUE READING
