An overview: the virulence capacity, resistance mechanism, integron association, biofilm formation ability, and methicillin- resistance traits among staphylococcus aureus


The ability of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) to acquire variety and many virulence genes that leads to its the ability to cause different diseases in many hosts species, these bacteria have many mechanisms for antibiotic resistance and their ability to produce biofilm and gain various genes through integrons, that will lead to difficult treatment. Consequently, the acquisition of the mecA gene made it more virulent and resistant to antibiotics, and this indicates that the spread of these bacteria in human and animal communities besides health institutions and their frequent transmission between these communities may have a problem of dealing with it.
