J Appl Genet. 2016;57:543-547 pubmed..However, ccr sequence analysis does not allow the identification of a new allotype, based on a cut-off value of 85 % identity. The ccr genes in the S. haemolitycus strain showed ?96 % sequence identity to the ccrAB2 genes. ..

Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek. 2017;: pubmed publisher..The results indicate that the pathogenicity of S. hominis may be multifactorial, involving adhesion, invasion and the activity of extracellular toxins, which cause damage to the host epithelium. ..

Molecular basis of resistance to macrolides, lincosamides and streptogramins in Staphylococcus hominis strains isolated from clinical specimens. Folia Microbiol (Praha). 2016;61:143-7 pubmed publisher..These studies indicated that resistance to MLSB in S. hominis is mostly based on the ribosomal target modification mechanism mediated by erm genes, mainly the erm(C), and enzymatic drug inactivation mediated by lnu(A)...
