    The aim of this study was to determine the presence of genes encoding enterotoxins ( sea- sej) and toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 ( tst) of Staphylococcus aureus strains ( n = 130) isolated from subclinical bovine mastitis in Turkey by polymerase chain reaction. Sixty-one (46.9%) isolates were...
