Penicillin-binding proteins and cell wall composition in beta-lactam-sensitive and -resistant strains of Staphylococcus sciuri.

Abstract

A close homologue of the acquired Staphylococcus aureus mecA gene is present as a native gene in Staphylococcus sciuri. We determined the patterns of penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) and the peptidoglycan compositions of several S. sciuri strains to explore the functions of this mecA homologue, named pbpD, in its native S. sciuri environment. The protein… (More)
