Table 2 Phenotypic manifestation and genes encoding the MLSB resistance as well as the methicillin resistance in tested isolates belonging to the species: S. epidermidis, S. hominis, S. haemolyticus, S. warneri and S. simulans

From: Differences in distribution of MLS antibiotics resistance genes in clinical isolates of staphylococci belonging to species: S. epidermidis, S. hominis, S. haemolyticus, S. simulans and S. warneri
