The levels of staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB) produced by various naturally occurring toxinogenic strains of Staphylococcus aureus are highly variable. The SEB gene (seb) from a high-producer strain, S6, has previously been cloned and characterized. Cloning and nucleotide sequence analysis of the upstream region of the seb gene from DU4916 and COL (medium- and low-level toxin-producer strains, respectively) showed that their sequence was identical to that of the seb gene from strain S6… CONTINUE READING
