Coagulase is an enzyme produced by S. aureus that converts soluble fibrinogen in plasma to insoluble fibrin. Staphylococcus aureus produces two forms of coagulase, bound and free. Slide coagulase test is done to detect bound coagulase or clumping factor. Tube coagulase test is done to detect free coagulase Staphylococcus aureus is coagulase-positive (produces the enzyme coagulase which causes clot formation). 4 Staphylococcus aureus is a gram-positive catalase and coagulase-positive organism that classically forms clusters when visualized with Gram stain. Importantly, when recovered from primary clinical specimens such as abscesses, S. aureus may appear as pairs of cocci or as a single bacterium Details. The method is applicable to the enumeration of coagulase-positive staphylococci (Staphylococcus aureus and other species) and in all food types, dairy products and environmental samples.

coagulase, restriction fragment length polymorphism, sequence-based phylogenetic analysis, Staphylococcus aureus. Introduction. Staphylococcus aureus . is considered as a signifi-cant pathogen of animals and humans. It is regarded as the most common and prominent causative agent in all forms of mastitis. It is the major prevalent organis Staphylococcus aureus, the most pathogenic species, is usually identified by its ability to produce coagulase (proteins that affect fibrinogen of the blood-clotting cascade). Since most other species of staphylococci do not produce coagulase, it is useful to divide staphylococci into coagulase-positive and coagulase-negative species Staphylococcus aureus. A 23-year-old woman presents to the emergency department with fever, chills, and watery diarrhea. Her symptoms began approximately 1 day after menstruation began. Her temperature is 102°F (38.9°C), blood pressure is 75/50 mmHg, pulse is 125/min, and respirations are 20/min. Physical examination is notable for a diffuse. S. aureus is coagulase positive and expresses several virulence factors which support evasion of the host immune response. S. epidermidis is coagulase negative and is usually less virulent, although it can evade the host immune system by forming and subsequently hiding in a biofilm. S. aureus is commonly responsible for many localized.
Background. Staphylococcus aureus has long been recognized as a major pathogen. Methicillin-resistant strains of S. aureus (MRSA) and methicillin-resistant strains of S. epidermidis (MRSE) are among the most prevalent multiresistant pathogens worldwide, frequently causing nosocomial and community-acquired infections.. Methods. In the present pilot study, we tested a polymerase chain reaction. Staphylococcus aureus Background Staphylococcus aureus is a coagulase-positive bacteria, which is a general name for a class of bacteria that are small, round, and gram-positive. Staph. aureus is a contagious pathogen, which is transmitted from infected glands or teats during the milking process. It is a major caus
The two coagulase-negative Staph. aureus isolates were additionally characterized by PCR amplification of species-specific parts of the 23S rRNA, 16S-23S rRNA intergenic spacer region, coagulase (coa), clumping-factor (clfA), alpha haemolysin (hla), beta haemolysin (hlb), thermonuclease (nuc), and IgG binding region and x-region of protein A. Staphylococcus aureus is the most pathogenic species and is implicated in a variety of infections. Clinically common species of staphylococci other than S. aureus are often referred to as coagulase-negative staphylococci. These staphylococci are normal flora of the skin and, as such, frequently act as opportunistic pathogens, especially in the. The coagulase test is one way to differentiate the highly pathogenic S. aureus from the other less pathogenic staphylococcal species on the human body. S. aureus is a coagulase-positive organism whereas all the other staphylococcal species that colonize humans are coagulase negative References 1. Berke, A., and R. C. Tilton. 1986 The ability of Staphylococcus aureus to clot plasma through conformational activation of prothrombin by staphylocoagulase is used to distinguish S. aureus from coagulase-negative staphylococci. We show that while the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran inhibits staphylocoagulase activity, the clinical use of dabigatran etexilate is not expected to interfere with direct tube coagulase testing
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been almost exclusively a health care-associated pathogen until the nineties. Community-acquired strains (CA-MRSA) have now emerged worldwide and are increasingly reported in a wide spectrum of diseases, ranging from moderate skin infections to severe necrotizing pneumonia, most often in patients with no comorbidities or risk factors [1, 2] Until recently, the only well-known coagulase-positive staphylococcus species recognized as human pathogen was Staphylococcus aureus. Previously, the ability to produce coagulase was used as its basic diagnostic feature, because other coagulase-positive species were associated with animal hosts. Progress in the laboratory medicine, in which. Staphylococcus aureus is facultative anaerobic gram-positive cocci which occur singly, in pairs, and irregulular clusters. S. aureus is nonmotile, non-spore forming, catalase and coagulase positive. Typical colonies are yellow to golden yellow in color, smooth, entire, slightly raised, and hemolytic on 5% sheep blood agar . S. aureus has an extraordinary repertoire of virulence factors that allows to survive extreme conditions in human and promote tissue colonization, tissue damage, and ensues life-threatening. Staphylococcus aureus. Conclusion: Coagulase test can replace the standard gold test for the detection of Staphylococcus aureus. In case of doubt, the bacteriological characteristics and the factors associated with Staphylococcal infections may be helpful in the diagnosis of Staphylococcus aureus infection

However, there is no overwhelming evidence that it is a virulence factor, although it is reasonable to speculate that the bacteria could protect themselves from phagocytic and immune defenses by causing localized clotting
Coagulase. Coagulase is an enzyme that is produced by some types of bacteria.The enzyme clots the plasma component of the blood. The only significant disease-causing bacteria of humans that produces coagulase is Staphylococcus aureus.. In the human host, the action of coagulase produces clotting of the plasma in the immediate vicinity of the bacterium All coagulase-producing staphylococci are, by definition, S. aureus. Coagulase production is demonstrated by tube coagulase test, which is an important test for the identification of S. aureus. 2. Bound coagulase: Bound coagulase is otherwise known asclumping factor. It is a heat-stable protein and is present in the cell wall ⇒ Coagulase Test:-This test is done for distinguishing the Staphylococcus aureus from other Staphylococci which important for differentiating pathogenic strain from the non-pathogenic strains of Staphylococci. ⇒ Mannitol fermentation:-Staphylococcus aureus is the only Staphylococcus that ferments the Mannitol The pathogenic species of Staphylococcus i.e. S. aureus have certain characteristics like the production of enzymes Coagulase, Phosphatase, Deoxyribonuclease and ability to ferment mannitol sugar. These tests are really helpful in differentiating S. aureus from other species
Staph bacteria are one of the most common causes of food poisoning. Symptoms come on quickly, usually within hours of eating a contaminated food. Symptoms usually disappear quickly, too, often lasting just half a day. A staph infection in food usually doesn't cause a fever. Signs and symptoms you can expect with this type of staph infection.

Staphylococcus aureus is the major pathogen among species of Staphylococcus. It possesses several traits that enhance this bacterium's ability to cause disease. These traits, termed virulence factors, include toxins as well as two types of coagulase enzymes. One type o Approximately 10% of S. aureus isolates in the United States are susceptible to penicillin. However, many S. aureus strains, while resistant to penicillin, remain susceptible to penicillinase-stable penicillins, such as oxacillin and methicillin. Strains that are oxacillin and methicillin resistant, historically termed methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), are resistant to all ß-lactam. The nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus occurs in 40-50% of humans. Human skin is densely colonized with coagulase-negative species and to a lesser extent with Staphylococcus aureus. The chief sources of infection are the shedding human lesions, contaminated fomites, human respiratory tract and skin The current study aimed to use Coagulase gene polymorphism to identify methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) subtypes isolated from nasal carriers in Minia governorate, Egypt, evaluate the efficiency of these methods in discriminating variable strains, and compare these subtypes with antibiotypes. A total of 400 specimens were collected from nasal carriers in Minia governorate.
