The use of whole-cell protein profile analysis by SDS-PAGE as an accurate tool to identify species and subspecies of coagulase-negative staphylococci.

Abstract

We used sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) as a tool to characterize coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS). Of 253 clinical isolates and 10 control strains, five species and four subspecies were analyzed. All the isolates were identified using conventional phenotypic tests and SDS-PAGE. Discrepant results between these… (More)
