Abstract

The implication of biofilm in chronic bacterial infection in many species has triggered an increasing interest in the characterization of genes involved in biofilm formation. The bap gene is a newly identified gene that encodes the biofilm-associated protein, BAP, which is involved in biofilm formation in Staphylococcus aureus. So far the bap gene has only been found in a small proportion of S. aureus strains from bovine mastitis in Spain. In order to study the presence of the bap gene in S. aureus isolates obtained from other species and various locations, a collection of 262 isolates was tested by PCR, using published primers and dot-blot. The results indicated that none of the isolates carried the bap gene suggesting that the prevalence of this gene among S. aureus isolates should be very low.
