Autolytic characterization of selected Enterococcal strains, (previously Streptococcal)
Autolysins are enzymes that cleave specific structural components within the bacterial cell wall. They contribute to numerous cellular activities such as cell growth, cell division, peptidoglycan recycling and turnover. ...
Characterisation of antibiotic resistance in Streptococcus, Enterococcus and Staphylococcus using a bioinformatics approach.
The rate at which bacterial pathogens are becoming resistant to antibiotics is quite alarming, and therefore much attention has been focussed on this area. The mechanism whereby the bacterial cells acquire resistance is ...
Genetic characterization of resistance and virulence genes in Enterococcus species from animal isolates in Durban.
Misuse of antimicrobials in animal agriculture has given rise to strains of bacteria that are resistant to multiple antibiotics. Enterococci bacteria have emerged among such antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria and ...
