The species of 203 strains of coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS), isolated from bovine udder quarters was determined; all were tested for hydrophobicity and encapsulation, attributes that may relate to virulence. Twelve species were identified, of which Staphylococcus simulans, (34.5%), S. chromogenes (16.7%), S. epidermidis (13.8%) and S. xylosus (8.9%) were the most frequent. The majority of strains possessed a hydrophilic cell surface. However, strains from two species (S. chromogenes… CONTINUE READING
