Relative transcript levels of several adhesions. The levels of transcription of these genes including map, fnbA, fnbB, clfB, efb were measured by real-time RT-PCR in S. aureus WTp, ΔluxSp and ΔluxS complemented with a plasmid containing luxS gene for genetic complementation (ΔluxSpluxS). As the control, WT and ΔluxS were transformed with empty plasmid PLI50, constructing WTp and ΔluxSp.
