staphylococcus simiae sp. nov., isolated from south american squirrel monkeys.eight coagulase-negative, oxidase-negative and novobiocin-susceptible staphylococcal strains were isolated from the gastrointestinal tracts of south american squirrel monkeys (saimiri sciureus l.). these strains were differentiated from known staphylococcal species on the basis of 16s rrna gene and hsp60 gene sequencing, and from the most closely related species by using dna-dna hybridization, ribotyping, whole-cell protein profiles and biotyping. phylogenetic analysis based on 16s rrna gene seq ...200516166694
isolation of mammalian pathogenic bacteria using silkworms.we developed a method to predict bacterial pathogenicity against mammals by measuring bacterial virulence in silkworms at 37°c, human body temperature. one hundred and twenty-two strains of bacteria were isolated from the intestines of fish and shellfish and tested for their virulence against silkworms. overnight cultures of 50 strains killed at least 50% of the silkworms when injected into the hemolymph. of 10 strains that showed the most potent pathogenicity against silkworms, 8 also killed mi ...201122466142
comparative genomic analysis of the genus staphylococcus including staphylococcus aureus and its newly described sister species staphylococcus simiae.staphylococcus belongs to the gram-positive low g + c content group of the firmicutes division of bacteria. staphylococcus aureus is an important human and veterinary pathogen that causes a broad spectrum of diseases, and has developed important multidrug resistant forms such as methicillin-resistant s. aureus (mrsa). staphylococcus simiae was isolated from south american squirrel monkeys in 2000, and is a coagulase-negative bacterium, closely related, and possibly the sister group, to s. aureus ...201222272658
