Abstract:
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a clinically prevailing bacterium resistant to numerous antibiotics. The genetic factor mec genes are known to responsible for methicillin resistance. In this study, a total of 68 S. aureus isolates from clinical and sub clinical bovine mastitis were screened for cefoxitin disk diffusion assay and 52 isolates were identified as MRSA. Out of these MRSA, 11 isolates were either habouring mecA or mecC genes with higher incidence of mecA detection than mecC gene. The molecular detection of mecA and mecC genes among MRSA further add in molecular epidemiology with understanding the rise of multidrug resistance.
