||ABSTRACTThe serine-aspartate repeat proteins (Sdr) are members of a family of surface proteins and contribute to the pathogenicity of Staphylococcus aureus. Among 288 S. aureus isolates including 158 and 130 associated with skin and soft tissue infections and bloodstream infection, respectively; 275 (95.5%) were positive for at least one of threesdr genes tested. The positivity rates for sdrC, sdrD, and sdrE among S. aureusisolates were 87.8% (253/288), 63.9% (184/288), and 68.1% (196/288), respectively. 224 (77.8%) of 288 isolates were concomitantly positive for two or three sdr genes. There was an association between carriage ofsdrE and methicillin-resistant S. aureus(MRSA) isolates, while the carriage rates of sdrC andsdrD in MRSA isolates were similar to those in methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) isolates. The prevalence of co-existence of sdrC and sdrE among MRSA isolates was significantly higher than that among MSSA isolates (p < 0.05). All ST1, ST5, ST7, and ST25 isolates were positive for sdrD. While all ST121 and ST398 isolates were negative for sdrD. All ST59 and ST88 isolates were positive forsdrE. All ST1 isolates were concomitantly positive forsdrC and sdrD. Concomitant carriage ofsdrC, sdrD, and sdrE was found among all ST5, 75.0% (9/12) of ST1, 69.2% (9/13) of ST6, 78.6% (11/14) of ST25, and 90.9% (20/22) of ST88 isolates. sdrD was linked to CC5, CC7 and CC88 isolates, especially CC88 isolates. There was a strong association between the presence of sdrE and CC59, CC88, and CC5 isolates. A significant correlation between concomitant carriage of sdrC, sdrD, and sdrE and CC88 isolates was found.sdrC-positive, sdrD-positive andsdrE-negative gene profile was significantly associated with CC7 clone. There was an association between sdrC-positive,sdrD-negative, and sdrE-positive gene profile and CC59 isolates. A correlation between sdrC-positive,sdrD-negative, and sdrE-negative gene profile and CC121 clone was found. More CC59 isolates carriedsdrC-negative, sdrD-negative, andsdrE-positive gene profile relative to other four CCs isolates. All ST1 and ST5, 95.2% (20/21) of ST188 and 95.2% (20/21) of ST630 isolates were positive for sdrC. Taken together, our investigation indicated that different S. aureus lineages were associated with specific patterns of carriage of sdr genes.|
