Figure 1.

Representative images showing detection of virulence and 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 B. Graphical presentation of prevalence for selected determinants.
