Background: Staphylococcus aureus, a Gram-positive bacterium, is the most prevalent food-borne pathogen in most regions of the world. The current study was carried out with the aim of S. aureus isolation from shrimps sold in Tehran, Iran. Furthermore, the genes of mecA as indicator of methicillin-resistant S. aureus, sea, seb, and tsst encoding enterotoxins were studied in the S. aureus isolates. Methods: Totally, 150 fresh and 150 frozen shrimp samples were collected from seafood retailers in… CONTINUE READING
