Differentiation of coagulase-positive and coagulase-negative staphylococci by lectins and plant agglutinins



Differentiation of coagulase-positive and coagulase-negative staphylococci by lectins and plant agglutinins



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 15(4): 547-553



The screening of staphylococci with a panel of 14 lectins and extracts demonstrating lectin-like activity led to the development of a rapid agglutination slide test for the differentiation of certain coagulase-negative staphylococci and human strains of Staphylococcus aureus. The coagulase-negative staphylococci were agglutinated by agglutinins from Mangifera indica, Triticum vulgaris, and crude Limulus polyphemus. The test is rapid, requiring only 5 to 15 min to identify an unknown strain of staphylococci, as opposed to the 4 to 16 h required to perform the conventional tube coagulase test.
