Staphylococcus epidermidis lipoteichoic acid: exocellular release and ltaS gene expression in clinical and commensal isolates.

Abstract

PURPOSE Staphylococcus epidermidis ATCC12228 lipoteichoic acid (LTA) inhibits TNFα production from keratinocytes that are activated with poly I:C. However, this effect has not been proven in clinical or commensal isolates. METHODOLOGY The <10 kDa fractions of S. epidermidis isolates from ocular infections (n=56), healthy skin (n=35) and healthy… (More)
