- Staphylococcus aureus Isolates from Irish Domestic Refrigerators Possess Novel Enterotoxin and Enterotoxin-like Genes and Are Clonal in Nature. Smyth, Davida S.; Kennedy, Jean; Twohig, Jane; Miajlovic, Helen; Bolton, Declan; Smythi, Cyril J. // Journal of Food Protection;Apr2006, Vol. 69 Issue 3, p508
A previous study carried out by the National Food Centre in Dublin on bacterial contamination of Irish domestic refrigeration systems revealed that 41% were contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus. One hundred fifty-seven S. aureus isolates were screened by multiplex PCR analysis for the...
- Toxic staph strain may be emerging. // Hospital Infection Control & Prevention;Mar2009, Vol. 36 Issue 3, p32
The article reports on Staphylococcus aureus infection in the U.S. It states that the strain produced deletion mutant form of toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 (TST1) and variant enterotoxin C. The physiological effect of the TST1 is provided. It also presents the cases of two patients that describe...
