Protein A in Staphylococcus hyicus subsp. hyicus isolates from pigs, chickens and cows


Protein A in Staphylococcus hyicus subsp. hyicus isolates from pigs, chickens and cows

The presence and quantity of protein A in S.hyicus subsp. hyicus isolates from pigs, chickens and cows were examined. Cell-bound protein A was demonstrated in 42(89.4%) of 47 isolates from diseased pigs and in 105 (79.5%) of 132 isolates from healthy pigs by a slide haemagglutination test, but not in any isolates from chickens and cows. In the immunodiffusion test with digested cell supernatants, almost all of these swine isolates formed a precipitating line against human IgG, which fused with precipitating line formed by protein A of S. aureus strain Cowan I. When the quantity of cell-bound protein A was determined by a microplate haemagglutination test with digested cell supernatants, most of the swine isolates showed lower titres of 32 to 256, as compared with S. aureus (5120). On the other hand, protein A was also demonstrated in the culture supernatants of swine isolates, but it seemed to be cell-bound protein A, which was released into the medium from the bacterial cell walls.
