BackgroundStaphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen, causing a wide variety of diseases ranging from superficial skin infections to severe life threatening infections. S. aureus is one of the leading causes of nosocomial infections. Its ability to resist multiple antibiotics poses a growing public health problem. In order to understand the mechanism of pathogenesis of S. aureus, several global expression profiles have been developed. These transcriptional profiles included regulatory… Expand
SATRAT: Staphylococcus aureus transcript regulatory network analysis tool
This work has substantially updated this database and built a novel exploratory tool—SATRAT—the S. aureus transcript regulatory network analysis tool, capable of performing deep searches using a query and generating an interactive regulatory network based on associations among the regulators of any query gene. Expand
Genome-scale transcriptional profiling in Staphylococcus aureus : bringing order out of chaos.
There was a striking lack of overlap between the transcriptional profiles defined by different experiments targeting the same phenomenon in S. aureus, highlighting the need to introduce some degree of standardization into genome-scale, microarray-based transcriptional profiling experiments. Expand
In Silico Sub-unit Hexavalent Peptide Vaccine Against an Staphylococcus aureus Biofilm-Related Infection
The amino acid sequence introduced here is expected to enhance cell-mediated and humoral responses against S. aureus biofilm-related infections to clear biofilm communities of S.aureus and intracellular colonies of pathogen as well as planktonic cells and thus reduces colonization and persistence. Expand
Comparative Transcriptomics Reveals Discrete Survival Responses of S. aureus and S. epidermidis to Sapienic Acid
It is shown that S. aureus is inhibited to a greater extent than S. epidermidis by the sebaceous lipid sapienic acid, supporting a role for this skin antimicrobial in selection of skin staphylococci. Expand
Identification and characterization of an operon, msaABCR, that controls virulence and biofilm development in Staphylococcus aureus
A new operon that regulates fundamental phenotypes in S. aureus such as biofilm development and virulence is identified, and the findings may be therapeutically relevant. Expand
AureoWiki ̵ The repository of the Staphylococcus aureus research and annotation community.
The AureoWiki database provides detailed information on the genes and proteins of clinically and experimentally relevant S. aureus strains, currently covering NCTC 8325, COL, Newman, USA300_FPR3757, and N315, by implementing a pan-genome approach, thus supporting functional annotation and better understanding of this organism. Expand
Identification and Characterization of an Operon , msaABCR , That Controls Virulence and Biofilm Development in Staphlococcus aureus
Background: Community-acquired, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains often cause localized infections in immunocompromised hosts, but some strains show enhanced virulence leading toExpand
Natural mutations in a Staphylococcus aureus virulence regulator attenuate cytotoxicity but permit bacteremia and abscess formation
A spontaneously evolving, attenuated-cytotoxicity, nonhemolytic S. aureus phenotype, controlled by a pleiotropic transcriptional regulator/noncoding RNA virulence regulatory system, capable of causing S.aureus bloodstream infections is identified. Expand
Absence of Protein A Expression Is Associated With Higher Capsule Production in Staphylococcal Isolates
The data suggest that S. aureus may alter its virulence factor expression pattern as an adaptation to the host or environment, and provide evidence that SpA- strains are highly susceptible to phagocytic uptake mediated by anti-capsule antibodies. Expand
Integrating Omics Data to Prioritize Target Genes in Pathogenic Bacteria
The clinical importance of the drug-resistant isolates related to severe nosocomial or community infections belonging to the species Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus, two of the six ESKAPE pathogens, as well as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis, are stressed.

Transcription Profiling of the mgrA Regulon in Staphylococcus aureus
The data indicate that MgrA regulates virulence factors in a fashion analogous to that of the accessory gene regulatory locus (agr), Accordingly, exoproteins are upregulated and surface proteins are downregulated by the regulator, suggesting that mgrA may function in concert with agr. Expand
Transcriptional profiling of a Staphylococcus aureus clinical isolate and its isogenic agr and sarA mutants reveals global differences in comparison to the laboratory strain RN6390.
The results indicate that, in contrast to NCTC 8325 derivatives, agr plays a limited role in overall regulation of gene expression in UAMS-1, when compared with sarA, and identify a sarA-regulated operon that is also induced in biofilms, and demonstrated that mutation of alsSD results in reduced capacity to form a biofilm. Expand
Microarray-Based Analysis of the Staphylococcus aureus σB Regulon
The data presented here suggest that the σB of S. aureus controls a large regulon and is an important modulator of virulence gene expression that is likely to act conversely to RNAIII, the effector molecule of the agr locus. Expand
Microarray-based analysis of the Staphylococcus aureus sigmaB regulon.
The data presented here suggest that the sigmaB of S. aureus controls a large regulon and is an important modulator of virulence gene expression that is likely to act conversely to RNAIII, the effector molecule of the agr locus. Expand
Characterization of the Staphylococcus aureus Heat Shock, Cold Shock, Stringent, and SOS Responses and Their Effects on Log-Phase mRNA Turnover
Correlations between mRNA turnover properties and transcript titers suggest that S. aureus stress response-dependent alterations in transcript abundances can, in part, be attributed to alterations in RNA stability. Expand
Effect of Mild Acid on Gene Expression in Staphylococcus aureus
It is shown that changes in staphylococcal gene expression formerly thought to represent a glucose effect are largely the result of declining pH, and possible regulatory pathways by which the organism senses and responds to a pH stimulus are pointed to. Expand
Two‐component system VraSR positively modulates the regulation of cell‐wall biosynthesis pathway in Staphylococcus aureus
The observation strongly indicates that VraSR constitutes a positive regulator of cell‐wall peptidoglycan synthesis, and that is deeply involved in the expression of β‐lactam and glycopeptide resistance in S. aureus. Expand
