Detection of Fibronectin Binding Protein (fnb A) gene in Staphylococcus aureus isolates
Keywords:S. aureus, PCR, fnb A gene
This study designed to molecular evaluation of the fibronectin-binding proteins gene (fnb A) in clinical isolates of S. aureus which recovered from 120 swabs from pharyngitis and tonsillitis patients during the period from February, 2017 to November, 2017. Among all bacterial isolates, only 32 (26.66%) were positive on mannitol salt agar and biochemical methods, which identified as S. aureus. The molecular analysis of fnb A gene was done by employing the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The results revealed that 59% of isolates were found positive for fnb A gene.
