Remarkable geographical variations between India and Europe in carriage of the staphylococcal surface protein-encoding sasX/sesI and in the population structure of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus belonging to clonal complex 8

Abstract

sasX is a colonization-virulence factor that potentially underlies the success of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) sequence type (ST) 239 in Asia. We aimed to study the spread of sasX and the population structure of MRSA in two geographically distinct regions, Europe and India.
