- Characterization of the Staphylococcal Cassette Chromosome Composite Island of Staphylococcus haemolyticus SH32, a Methicillin-Resistant Clinical Isolate from China. Yu, Dongliang; Pi, Borui; Chen, Yan; Wang, Yanfei; Ruan, Zhi; Otto, Michael; Yu, Yunsong // PLoS ONE;Jan2014, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p1
Staphylococcal cassette chromosome (SCC) elements contribute considerably to virulence and resistance to antibiotic agents in staphylococci. SCC elements in coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) are highly diverse and there is evidence suggesting that they serve as a reservoir for antibiotic...
