In contrast, mecB, originally described as [mecA.sub.m], was reported as part of a probable primordial form of a methicillin resistance gene complex often found in a transposon mec complex (Tn6045) in Macrococcus
caseolyticus, a colonizer of animal skin (15,16).
Similarly, the sequence identities of the bands retrieved from the Firmicutes DGGE gel were also 100% related to the expected phyla, including Bacillus, Macrococcus
, Staphylococcus, and Exiguobacterium (Table S4).
At the genus level, the core microbiome of raw milk originating from Hoengseong and Pyeongchang encompassed members of Massilia (6.66% and 9.17%), Bacillus (5.14% and 5.29%), Corynebacterium (4.02% and 1.47%), Macrococcus
(2.48% and 1.18%), Staphylococcus (1.92% and 2.61%), Arthrobacter (1.75% and 2.02%), Streptococcus (1.71% and 2.52%), and Burkholderia (1.66% and 1.50%), respectively.
Green Synthesis of Silver Nano-particles by Macrococcus
bovicus and Its Immobilization onto Montmorillonite Clay for Antimicrobial Functionality.
(3 strains; 1.8% of the isolates), Macrococcus
caseolyticus (2 strains; 1.2%), Enterobacter spp.
Phylogenetic study of Staphylococcus and Macrococcus
species based on partial hsp60 gene sequences.
The following bacteria were identified only by partial 16S rRNA gene sequencing: Staphylococcus sciuri, Lysinibacillus spp., and Macrococcus
Contradicting results were observed for Macrococcus
spp., which showed higher percentages with the 8-f-534r primers using the extraction method I, but the primer set 968f-1401r showed higher percentages with the extraction method II.
