PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

In the original legend, Panel B incorrectly appears again for Panel D. The correct legend to figure 1 should read:

Figure 1, Representative images showing detection of virulence/antimicrobial resistance genes/determinants in MRSA isolates. Lanes: L, 100 bp DNA ladder; N, negative control (for all images). Panel A: 1 & 2, species confirmation of S. aureus by detection of the nuc gene; 3 & 4, ica; 5, bhp; 6 & 7, PVL. Panel B: 1 & 2, nuc; 3 & 4, tst1; 5 & 6, hla; 7 & 8, sdrE; 8, sea. Panel C: Detection of genes encoding aminoglycoside modifying enzymes (AMEs). 1 & 2, (aac(6’)-Ie-aph(2’’)-Ia); 3 & 4, (aph(3’)-IIIa); 5 & 6, (ant(4’)-Ia). Panel D. Graphical presentation of prevalence for selected determinants.
