Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) of the Sma I-fragmented genomic DNA of the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus isolates obtained from nasal swabs of companion animals. A, lanes 1–4: Representives of the methicillin-resistant S. saprophyticus ; 5: MRSA from cat (isolate 87); 6: Human isolate of CA-MRSA belonging to USA 1100 (ST30-SCCmec IV); 7: Lambda-ladder molecular size marker. B, lane 1: S. pseudintermedius from dog (isolate 02); 2: Representative isolate of the S. conhii-urea (isolate 28) and 3: Lambda-ladder molecular size marker.
