Characterization of non-pigmented Staphylococcus chromogenes



Characterization of non-pigmented Staphylococcus chromogenes



Journal of Veterinary Medical Science 58(7): 711-713



A large number of non-pigmented Staphylococcus chromogenes were isolated from the skin of piglets with exudative epidermitis and healthy pigs. Their characteristics were homologous with S. chromogenes type strain, except for pigment production. Strains of non-pigmented S. chromogenes exhibited high levels of DNA homology with S. chromogenes type strain. The colony morphology and pigmentation of non-pigmented S. chromogenes was very similar to S. hyicus type strain, but their characteristics differ in hyaluronidase production, heat stable DNase, Tween 80 hydrolysis and bacitracin resistance. Further, DNA homology drew a distinction between non-pigmented S. chromogenes and S. hyicus type strain.
