Staphylococcus aureus develops an alternative, ica-independent biofilm in the absence of the arlRS two-component system
(American Society for Microbiology, 2005) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
The biofilm formation capacity of Staphylococcus aureus clinical isolates is considered an important virulence factor for the establishment of chronic infections. Environmental conditions affect the biofilm formation capacity ...
Relevant role of fibronectin-binding proteins in Staphylococcus aureus biofilm-associated foreign-body infections
(American Society for Microbiology, 2009) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Staphylococcus aureus can establish chronic infections on implanted medical devices due to its capacity to form biofilms. Analysis of the factors that assemble cells into a biofilm has revealed the occurrence of strains ...
Protein A-mediated multicellular behavior in Staphylococcus aureus
(American Society for Microbiology, 2008) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
The capacity of Staphylococcus aureus to form biofilms on host tissues and implanted medical devices is one of the major virulence traits underlying persistent and chronic infections. The matrix in which S. aureus cells ...
B regulates IS256-mediated Staphylococcus aureus biofilm phenotypic variation
(American Society for Microbiology, 2007) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Biofilm formation in Staphylococcus aureus is subject to phase variation, and biofilm-negative derivatives emerge sporadically from a biofilm-positive bacterial population. To date, the only known mechanism for generating ...
