Analysis of aberrant virulence
[ 1 ]. The pathogenicity of S. aureus is due to several virulence factors such as enterotoxins, Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL), toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 (TSST-1) and biofilm production. Burn patients are at greater risk of exposure to S
], but whether all hvKP strains are hypermucoviscous is not clear [ 11 ]. So, in recent studies hvKP isolates were identified based on the existence of virulence genes such as peg-344 (putative transporter gene), iucA (iron-acquisition systems
resistance genes and virulence factors were identified by WGS analysis of eight erm -positive staphylococcal isolates [ 15 ], while WGS from several Greek MRSA isolates have been included in multicenter studies [ 16 , 17 ]. The aim of the present study was
