Hello,

Could someone please let me know whether the Staphylococcus saprophyticus cell wall expresses protein A, the same as what exist on Staphylococcus aureus cell wall?  I would very much appreciate your help.

Thanks

FL.

Check: http://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/16135568

 

if needed you can check the genome yourself for presence of the protein A (spa gene).

However: taken that the protein a (or the gene) is used to identify S. aureus , you can be pretty sure its not present in S. saprophyticus.

 

As far as I know, it is not present in S. saprophyticus.


If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
