Production of capsular polysaccharide does not influence Staphylococcus aureus vancomycin susceptibility

Abstract

Diverse mechanisms (increased cell wall thickness, low cross linking, decreased autolysis, etc.) have been reported for Staphylococcus aureus strains with intermediate vancomycin susceptibility (VISA). This study was conducted to identify common mechanisms responsible for decreased vancomycin susceptibility in a VISA strain pair. Transcriptional profiling… (More)
