Abstract:

Staphylococci are one of the most prevalent microorganisms in bovine mastitis. Staphylococcus spp. are widespread in the environment, and can infect animals and humans as opportunistic pathogens. The emergence and spread of methicillin-resistant coagulase negative Staphylococcus (MRCoNS) has become a significant concern for both animal health and public health. The objective of this study was to determine the frequency of methicillin-resistance (MR) among coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) in milk samples collected from bovine mastitis Identification of MRCoNS was based on both phenotypic and genotypic methods.


Keywords: Bovine mastitis, MRCoNS, PCR and Sequencing
