Production of toxic-shock-associated protein(s) in Staphylococcus aureus strains isolated from 1956 through 1982.


A total of 281 Staphylococcus aureus strains selected from those submitted to the Centers for Disease Control for phage typing between 1956 and 1982 were tested for the production of toxic-shock-associated protein (TSAP) by isoelectric focusing (IEF) and solid-phase radioimmunoassay. The results suggest that the observed temporal trends in the incidence of… (More)
